Lily grew up in Georgia but has called Florida home for 14 years. Throughout her childhood and adolescence, Lily was fortunate to connect with water and experience many of the wondrous offerings of the great outdoors: from waterskiing in Bakersfield, Ca., and swimming in Georgia’s Lake Sinclair, to rollicking in the waves off the coast of South Carolina and (personal favorite) exploring Tampa Bay’s beaches and waterways.
In the nine years she’s lived in St. Petersburg, Florida, Lily’s love for the state and its precious natural resources has only grown. She is eager and inspired to unite with the community to ensure Tampa Bay’s waters are swimmable, drinkable and fishable.
Lily is the senior director of marketing and communications at the American Heart Association Tampa Bay. In her downtime, she finds the utmost pleasure in spending time with her husband, dogs and friends, reading, gardening, cycling, and soaking in the Florida sunshine.
