Conscientious, Optimistic

Lillian Lake is one of the most energetic and enthusiastic people I know. Her irrepressible determination to find and optimize strategies in pursuing any number of worthy issues is an inspiration.  Lil is dependable and conscientious, optimistic and cheerful; she would be great to have on your side in any struggle.

Passionate, Involved

Lillian’s sensitivities to the needs of others and her unflagging energies makes a big difference in the lives of many.
