Lila is a generalist on Blue Beyond’s marketing team — with a hand in content development, web production, social media, and more.
Lila’s prior experience doing outreach, writing blogs, and learning how to collaborate and communicate with diverse groups at the mental health nonprofit Art With Impact, as well as UC Davis’ Student Health & Counseling Services — helped prepare her for her work at Blue Beyond.
Lila is known for being highly organized, a strong writer, and having a knack for working well on both “task” and “people” issues.
She holds a B.A. in Psychology from UC Davis with a minor in Film Studies.
Everything from my family to my education to my prior work experience has shaped me, and helped me bring to the table strong writing skills, a creative eye, a knack for organization, sensitivity to the needs of others, an understanding of human behavior, and an ability to function well as part of a tight-knit team.
What I find most rewarding is crafting engaging and creative content that’s digestible, but still makes people think. I enjoy work that allows me to try new things, gain a fresh skill set, make tangible progress, and deliver concrete results for my team.
I love asking people what their favorite movie is. I’ve learned a lot about myself, others, and the world around me from film. It’s always interesting to hear why certain movies really resonate emotionally with some people, and why they don’t quite land for others. It can be a great way to learn about other people, and it’s a fun way to find common ground.
During the summer of 2015, I studied abroad in Switzerland and France. I had never been that far from home before, without my family or anyone I knew, and I was so worried that I would be homesick and that I wouldn’t be able to get comfortable with all of the change. I could not have been more wrong. It was such a special experience that I will always cherish not only for the good times that were had, but for what it taught me about being adaptable and taking a leap.
