Ms. Toutounas oversees administration for the Cooney Center as the Senior Manager of Administration, overseeing meetings, board relations, and database management, as well as providing administrative support to Michael H.

Lili has also worked part time as an ESL tutor and Spanish tutor, while serving as a Teacher’s Assistant for a seminar on Native American Film and Fiction. Her passion for education brought her to Italy, where she taught English to 7- to 11-year-old students in Southern Italy and Sicily for a summer.  Lili’s extensive travel later brought her to work as a volunteer in Northern Israel’s bomb shelters, as well as to Egypt, where she traveled and lived for over one year.  Lili has a B.A. in Writing and Cultural Anthropology from SUNY Potsdam, where she was awarded a prize for her essay on the Theory of Rhetoric.
