Founded in 2017, The Princeton Tigerlilies’ Alumnae Board’s primary goal is to promote an ongoing community among undergraduate Tigerlilies and Tigerlily Alumnae. As a part of this community, the Board aims to provide strategic advisory, mentoring, financial support and historical context to support the current Tigerlily leadership team in order to provide a lasting heritage for the first all-female a cappella group at Princeton University.
PRESIDENT - Betsy Kalber Baglio ’96
Betsy Kalber Baglio ’96 (Chair) was a senior when the Tigerlilies celebrated the group’s 25th anniversary. Now, Betsy is looking forward to helping the group establish a legacy for the 50th anniversary and beyond. Betsy and her a cappella-loving family (her husband, Steve, is a ’96 Footnote, and her sons are always singing) moved back to Princeton in 2011 and live close enough to walk to arch sings. Since graduating from Princeton, Betsy has focused on the field of education as a teacher, a professional developer, an educational consultant and now as a member of the Board of Education for the Princeton Public Schools.

TREASURER - Jessica Hittle Marshall ’96
When Jessica (Hittle) Marshall, Soprano 1, Class of 96, was in the Tigerlilies, she told audiences that she was a chemical engineering major from Fort Collins, Colorado. Now she lives in Seattle, Washington and works from home as an editor at a chemistry magazine. In the interim, she's lived in Berkeley, Singapore, St. Paul (Minn.), and Barcelona, earned a Ph.D. in chemical engineering, and worked as a freelance science writer. She and her husband have eight-year-old twins and a toddler. In grad school, a lab mate once yelled at her because she subconsciously sang the background to Song of Long Ago all the time and it was driving him crazy.
SECRETARY - Christy Maver ‘99
Christy Maver, Sop II, Class of ’99 will be forever grateful to the Tigerlilies for the nickname Maverator. Born in New Jersey and raised in Kansas City, she has kept moving west and now resides in the Bay Area, where she runs marketing for a Machine Intelligence company on a mission to reverse-engineer the brain. She has been a Bikram Yoga instructor since 2006, and somehow still loves the daily exposure to obnoxious heat and humidity. She credits her time in Lils with introducing her to some of her personal favorite harmonies and heroes.
FUNDRAISING CHAIR - Arielle Patrick ‘12

She also sings in a chamber choir in New York that is directed by a fellow Princetonian and former KJ. Once some of Alex's co-workers found the Pitch Perfect parody video the Lils made for the Jam in 2013 and she has never lived it down. #acabelieveit
