Lily Linke completed her MA at UEP in the Fall of 2020. With a background in arts education, she is passionate about storytelling, and she truly believes that it can change the world. She came to Mary Davis last year with the idea to start a podcast for UEP, and she is thrilled that it’s actually happening. Lily has just started a new role as the Municipal Engagement Program Associate with the Citizens’ Housing and Planning Association, and she is grateful to be handing off this project to Ella.
