Lily Huffman joined the North Carolina Coastal Federation in 2020 as the Communications Specialist. She graduated in 2019 from Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment with a Master of Environmental Management degree, with a concentration in Coastal Environmental Management, and a certificate in Community-Based Environmental Management. Before that, she attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Conservation Biology, and a certificate in Folklore. Lily believes in a multi-disciplinary, inclusive approach to solving environmental problems, supported by clear, engaging communication. She is passionate about digital communications, especially when it’s in the form of photos and video. When she isn’t working to protect the coast, Lily can either be found reading a book in a sunny spot in her apartment, at the gym, or out and about photographing the many beautiful landscapes North Carolina has to offer.
