Prior to joining Heller in 2018, Lillian worked in the nonprofit sector for over twelve years. She served as the Education and Outreach Director at Heyday, a nonprofit publisher, where she made sure books were not just published, but read, discussed, and debated. It was in this role where she led a major Salesforce implementation and became more interested in using her nonprofit expertise alongside her technical expertise to expand the impact of mission-driven organizations. She went on to work for the nonprofit Butler Koshland Fellowships managing donor relations as well as their Salesforce environment and also worked for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission’s Community Benefits department where she managed and helped build out the Social Impact Partnership’s Salesforce solution. Lillian’s passion for applying her technology skills to support social justice causes shows up in her professional work as well as her volunteer work at places such as Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) SF and Our Family Coalition.
