Meet the Team Tuesday: Lily Aey
Happy New Year, reader! We’re back with our first Meet the Team Tuesday of 2024, and, this week, we’re highlighting our marketing manager and store dog Scout’s mom, Lily! Lily has been part of the FTT Team since April of last year and has been the person behind our social media posts, website updates, blogs, and newsletters since then!
Originally from Youngstown, Ohio, Lily spent six years in London, England where she worked for several award-winning advertising agencies. In her previous life in London, Lily got to work with some pretty cool clients like UGG, Lindt, Cancer Research UK, General Mills, and Anheuser-Busch. She has loved the transition from big city agency life to living and working right here in Seward, AK!
At FTT, Lily especially loves all of the incredible artwork from Alaskan artists like Ron Gravenhorst, Todd Salat, Meg Smith, Marisa Phasomsap, and Annie Brace! If she had to pick a favorite, it would be Ron Gravenhorst’s hand-carved birds, each one unique and beautiful.
Outside of work, Lily loves spending time with her border collie pup, Scout. The two can often be found hiking or playing on the beach together. Lily also loves to take her camera out and capture the beauty of Seward and the surrounding area. On snowy or rainy days, she can be found curled up with a good book – be sure to let Lily know if you have any book suggestions when you next visit!
Finally, as a fun fact, Lily had her first ever sighting of the Northern Lights in September of 2023 and captured a photo that can now be found on the small bags provided with a purchase here at FTT! Lily is constantly blown away by the beauty of Alaska and encourages everyone who can to visit.
