Lily Griffin


Event Coordinator |


After many years of compassionate public safety service, Lily joyfully followed her educational passions and obtained her Bachelors’ degree in English Literature and Organizational Communication from Metropolitan State University. While studying Shakespeare and SWOT analyses, she was employed at an elementary school, where she responsible for the coordination of student enrollments, parent communications, school wide events, facilities operations, budgets, and material acquisitions, and managing numerous calendars. It was there she found her passion for events, aesthetic experiences, and gathering a community for a cause. As the Event Coordinator at WomenVenture, Lily leads the planning of key events. Lily will continue to use her creativity, compassion, and commitment to a warm and welcome environment for all to plan and coordinate successful WomenVenture events.

Lily has lived around the world, yet possesses a unique ability to make everywhere she goes feel like home. Lily is excited to settle in and make WomenVenture her home and is passionate about making women entrepreneurs feel the same way. In her free time, Lily has a penchant for volunteering in the community, assisting with children’s theatre, tending to fairy gardens, and mosaic-ing everything she can find. Her future aspirations include becoming multilingual by developing her (currently) polite Spanish and French skills, publishing a novel, and keeping her many, many houseplants alive.
