Lily Wellen is the general manager of Marquette Radio this year. She was born and raised in Rockton, Illinois. She is a senior at Marquette University majoring in journalism and with a minor in digital media. When she’s not pursuing her journalistic dreams, she loves watching and quoting “Parks and Recreation.” Horror and Lifetime movies can keep her on the couch for hours. Cats and dogs bring her so much joy. She will never leave a french fry on any plate. When she is on the dance floor, her favorite move is the coffee grinder (and yes, she can really do that).
