Her sweet Southern charm and whole-hearted kindness are positive influences on an office otherwise full of city folk.

Before joining the team, Tilly worked at Docs for Tots, a Washington-based advocacy network for physicians that champions the healthcare and social needs of children.

Fun Facts
  • Tilly has traveled across the world, literally, skiing the alps (she lived in Europe for 7 years), swimming in Dubai, and trekking past the Egyptian pyramids on camel-back.

  • Tilly was taught how to field a baseball by Tommy Lasorda, her first job was scoring baseball games and she married an MLB Sirius XM executive producer – she and baseball cannot escape each other.

  • Tilly was elected class president from the seventh grade to her junior year of high school, and student government president her senior year; her record is so squeaky clean that if/when the position is created, she can become the President of the Universe (Trust us, we've Googled her).
