Each of us encounters defining moments in our lives. Moments that fundamentally shape who we are, moments that reveal our true selves.
My truest self was unearthed in a hospital bed.
At the age of 19, I was diagnosed with both Crohn's disease and psoriatic arthritis. Since the very moment I was in that hospital bed, I knew I had found my calling and dedicated my personal and professional life to patient advocacy.
I am the Founder & Principal at Patient Authentic where I leverage my marketing expertise and mastery of stakeholder relations to help healthcare organizations build meaningful campaigns, programs, and educational resources by authentically engaging with patients.
I am a Board Member for the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA) where I provide strategic direction on current and future initiatives of the organization.
I'm here to make a difference in the lives of patients and I'm doing that everyday like a #ChronicBoss!
“Lilly is an amazing advocate to work with. In working with her as a facilitator of a patient panel, she was insightful, passionate and very committed about ensuring the session resonated well for other patients. She ensured the attendees knew they were in a safe and respectful place to share their stories. Lilly is an inspirational and empowering advocate. She is committed to making the world a better place for others living with chronic disease. She has dedicated all that she does to making a difference for others, and is extremely knowledge about the hottest issues impacting healthcare today.”
