“At 17, Lily graduated at the top of her high school class and placed near the top of the national exams (held once each year for three eight hour days). She did well enough that she was only one of three students from her province of 80 million people to be accepted to Fudan University Law School that year, one of China’s top five universities.
Lily received her university law degree at Fudan University in Shanghai, practiced law and joined the Law faculty at Fudan. She came over to the U.S. in 1988 to earn a Master’s degree at the University of Texas at Austin, School of Social Work with a minor in Administration and Planning.
After her Master’s degree, Lily worked with troubled youth from dysfunctional families in Ivanson Memorial Hospital and Wyoming Home Health Care in Laramie, Wyoming as a social worker. Later, she worked for corporations in Hong Kong and the United States as a corporate executive. In particular, as “China Operations Manager” for PREL Inc., directly reporting to it’s president, she was responsible for the overall management of China-based office performing Wal-Mart manufacturer certification, quality control, and inspection. In that capacity, she also acted as a liaison between Wal-Mart’s exclusive world buying agent at the ime, PREL Inc., and vendors in China and Wal-Mart buyers.
Lily became a Colorado small business woman and entrepreneur in 2000. She is currently the President and founder of ACM International Corporation, a consulting and trading firm in Colorado specializing in China-related business services. She and her husband John also own and manage their rental properties in Colorado and Nevada.
Lily left the Republican Party and joined the Libertarian Party in 2008 because she felt the Republican party was abandoning principles of liberty. She was nominated as a Colorado Delegate to the Libertarian National Convention in 2012 and volunteered as the District Coordinator for the Libertarian Candidate for President Gary Johnson.
