Prior to AMS, Lily spent nearly a decade at the National Family Planning & Reproductive health association where she served as a key member of the senior leadership team, providing strategic counsel on operations during budget and staff growth of 300%. Lily spearheaded several critical IT improvements including implementation of a new website and finance software with membership database integration.

A native Delawarean, she now calls Washington DC home, and  serves as the treasurer for two community-based organizations. When she’s not exercising her passion for helping non-profits work better, Lily enjoys exploring the city with her family. She also likes to bake new creations for family, friends, and co-workers to enjoy.
