Lily comes to Imagine from Valparaiso, Indiana -- about 15 minutes from the Indiana Dunes and Lake Michigan shore. Lily swam on a club team in Valparaiso in her age group years, until she was 12 and decided to devote more time pursuing her passions in music and singing. After high school, Lily moved to Hartford, Connecticut and attended the Hartt School at the University of Hartford, majoring in Musical Theatre. It was during her college years in Connecticut that she first began teaching swim lessons. After graduating from the Hartt School with a BFA in Musical Theatre in May 2022, Lily made the move to New York City to continue pursuing acting, music, and theatre. As she pursues her creative ambitions, Lily is thrilled to be able to return to the pool as a part of the Imagine team. Lily's hobbies include singing, as well as playing piano and acoustic guitar, knitting, playing video games, and taking care of her two-year-old black cat, Nadja.
