Lilia began working with Movement Media in 2018. She works in communications as a means of promoting a healthier and more sustainable dynamic between humans, plants, and the other animals we coexist with.
In her role as Communications Specialist Lilia facilitates a variety of advocacy and solidarity based philanthropy initiatives. Her current focus includes helping to facilitate Dr. Bronner’s animal advocacy program, an international philanthropy initiative: The All-One International Initiative, and a COVID-19 mutual aid donation program.
Lilia has worked professionally in the field of communications over the last two decades and has been involved in direct action organizing, as well as communications and outreach work for a variety of environmental and wildlife conservation non-profits. In addition to her work with Movement Media, she is involved in implementing ecological restoration projects and is the board secretary of The Understory Initiative, a non-profit focused on prairie and pollinator habitat restoration in SW Oregon.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in Aboriginal Studies at the University of Tasmania, and pursued graduate studies in Cultural Landscapes at Deakin University (Australia). Originally from Tasmania, Australia, she has lived in Oregon since 2013, and is enjoying the challenge of learning an entirely different world of plants, fungi and wildlife.
