Lilly grew up in the Annapolis area of Maryland.  She graduated from Roanoke College in 2015 with a degree in Health and Exercise Science where she held leadership roles for RC InterVarsity, Gamma Sigma Sigma Service Sorority, and participated in NCAA III Lacrosse.  She’s has continued a life of service and is still involved with athletics by coaching for North Cross’ Varsity Field Hockey and Lacrosse program. More importantly, she’s continued to pursue her calling in ministry.

Lilly has a strong heart and love for teenagers. She desires for them to grow in their relationship with the Lord daily through discipleship, service, and missions. She loves to see students have “ah-ha” moments where they deepen their faith, knowledge, and love for God. She strongly affirms that she has the best job in the whole world.

She is a strong lover of Jesus, adventure, traveling, and Disney. In her free time, she enjoys being with friends and her husband, working out, and learning Spanish.

One of her favorite passages from scripture is Colossians 3.12-14: “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”
