Biography

After many years of compassionate public service in the military, at a hospital, and as a 911 call taker, dispatcher, and trainer, 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 served in elementary administration, responsible for the coordination of student enrollments, parent communications, school wide events, facilities operations, and managing numerous calendars. From her educational experiences in college as well as in an elementary school, she has been steeped with knowledge on what it means to be both excellent student and an educator. Lily hopes to use this knowledge to be an effective and empowering Training Coordinator at Women Venture. 

As the Training Coordinator at WomenVenture, Lily is the client relations liaison and facilitator for the Getting Ready and Small Business Essentials courses and oversees the registration and effectiveness of these classes. 

Away from work, Lily has moved around frequently, 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. If you see someone with a poetry book in her bag, snacking on gluten-free baked goods, and sipping a seasonal cup of tea, it’s probably Lily. 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.
