Lilian grew up in Southern Oregon before moving north to get a bachelor’s degree in math and physics at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. Upon graduating college, she moved up to Seattle, Washington, where she has been in the three years since. A couple of miscellaneous jobs pushed her to move into horticulture and work at a small, organic gardening company as a landscaper and then as the nursery administrator. In Lilian's free time at home, she enjoys gardening, baking, puzzling, and doing yoga. Otherwise, she is probably either at the park with her dog or out in the woods snowboarding, hiking, or adventuring in some other way.
