Part of our mission as a chapter is to connect and celebrate our amazing members who support us by becoming individual, Executive or Corporate members. Stay tuned as with each newsletter and at each MeetUp as we'll introduce you to members you can connect with.
Kim Anenberg Cavallo is the founder and CEO of lilspace, a company that enhances relationships in the digital age. The lilspace app encourages people to take breaks from their phones so they can earn rewards and support causes they care about.
Growing up with a Mom who was a therapist, Kim experienced the incredible power of relationships and became concerned when technology was clearly interfering with our human to human connections. Her dedication to protecting relationships is Kim’s way to honor her mother, Jane, who died in 2012.
After graduating from UCLA in 1988, Kim discovered the mindy/body connection when she began practicing Iyengar Yoga. As technology began to expand its grip on all of our minds, it became painfully obvious to Kim that, specifically, mobile devices were disrupting our relationships. In 2016, between anxious impulses to check her phone, Kim jumped up to protect real-time relationships from the mesmerizing draw of digital devices. It was then that the idea for lilspace was born.
With her 25 years experience raising money for NFPs, event planning, community building and connecting people to causes, in 2016, Kim began to focus on what would motivate us to put away our phones and practice being present more often.
Before shifting her focus to non-profit work, Kim worked in marketing and video production for 8 years. Kim has served as the Board President of an independent school and as a member of multiple non-profit boards. She is the co-founder of the Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival which has been successfully operating for the past 13 years. Additionally, Kim co-founded an experiential education program in partnership with the LA Museum of the Holocaust, where students connect with survivors through baking bread and storytelling.
When Kim puts away her phone, she loves doing yoga, riding at Soul Cycle, hiking, traveling and spending time with her husband, 2 adult sons and their huge circle of friends.
