She was the program coordinator at the University of Colorado's Collegiate Recovery Program, and then went on to work for young adult programs. Lily is passionate about helping young people and their families find the help and support they need. As a member of the business development team at Juniper Canyon Recovery Center for Women and Legacy Outdoor Adventures, Lily does outreach to clinical professionals and placement specialists.
