She performed on the Harold team, Cougars, at I.O. for 6 years. She traveled with The Second City National Touring Company for close to 3 years. She has also studied Meisner at The Neigborhood Playhouse in NYC. Lilly is a certified yoga instructor and a licensed cosmetologist as well. So, if you want to get a haircut, do some downward dog and then learn how to heighten an improv choice… you know who to call!
