Lily Platt

Toddler  Teacher

I have been with Star Light since 2018 and I love having the opportunity to be creative with the children as they learn and grow. I currently am attending MSU, pursuing my degree in Social Work. I grew up in Excelsior, MN with my sister and parents. In my spare time I enjoy playing rugby, camping, and hiking. 

I also have a cat named Wednesday and she is very entertaining!
