Lily Carlton

Director of Maritime Programs | San Diego, CA

As a member of the Operations team, Lily facilitates program distribution and implementation to Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard Commands throughout the world. Through dissemination of the program aboard deployed ships and within military commands and communities, she maximizes the number of service members benefitting from the program in order to ultimately increase connections for military families affected by service related separation.

As a Navy Chaplain spouse, Lily is passionate about caring for military families. She has volunteered with spouse groups, non-profits and her husband’s commands for the past 17 years. United Through Reading video recordings have benefitted her family during multiple deployments and provides her the opportunity to continue to serve the military community by spreading joy one story at a time. Lily has a degree in Marketing from California State University, Dominguez Hills. Contact Lily at
