Lilly joined Jefferson Land Trust in 2021 as our half-time Communications Coordinator. Raised in the Pacific Northwest, Lilly’s love of language led her to a BFA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing from Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts, and an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Wyoming in Laramie. She has worked in communications at international, national, and local-level non-profits and conservation-minded organizations, most recently at Camp Denali, a wilderness lodge in the heart of Denali National Park. Lilly is passionate about the intersection of land, wildlife, and people and believes that storytelling is a critical component of land conservation. She loves crossword puzzles, forest walks, and playing the ukulele.
