Aicila Lewis (Aye-ee-sila) (she/her/hers) is a Director of Motivation, an Organizational Strategist for Dreamers and Underdogs, an Asker of Hard Questions, a Community Builder, and a prolific writer.

An unapologetic geek, she may be dressed as a Star Trek cos-playing Minion or a Portal test subject (complete with portal gun). Lewis is an Apocaloptimist; she knows that it may all go horribly wrong, but assumes that even the zombie apocalypse will have a bright-side.

A well-known Colorado Progressive Leadership Fellow, Lewis was named One of the 100 Women we Love by Go! Magazine in 2011 and awarded a Special Certificate of Congressional Recognition in 2013 for her community work.

Lewis is blessed to have two fantastic children and an extensive polycule to support her in her various hijinx.
