I thank God for our publisher Kimberly Pitts and this AMAZING opportunity which is a beautiful proof of His grace and faithfulness!

About Lilian Chavira, Founder and Designer - JOY IN THE BREAKROOM

Lilian Chavira is an award-winning entrepreneur, published author, founder of two companies but mostly, she is a passionate dreamer and a woman of faith! Originally from Mexico, she met the love of her life during college and they married three years later in El Paso, TX. She earned a Bachelor degree in Business while working in Marketing & Design. In 2004 her husband was transferred to Michigan where they raised their children Daniel and Sarai. They were the inspiration to start her first business venture; a gourmet bakery “Petite Pleasures by Gellocake” that was later featured in USA Today, as well as 19 statewide, local publications and TV shows. She was recognized as the 2009 Meridian Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year by the SBTDC in Okemos, MI.

Four years later Lilian found herself encouraging her amazing husband to accept a promotion that would relocate them to Frisco, TX. Lilian closed her blooming business, convinced that her family was her first priority. Here she went back to corporate for 3 years but could not quiet her entrepreneurial spirit for too long. After a very dark season, a cancer-scare and surgery, she gave God her broken pieces and found in Him the courage of reinventing herself, raising again, understanding a new meaning for the words “joy” or “success” and being led by PURPOSE. So, she decided to leave behind the security of a paycheck and jumped off the cliff once again.

Now, as founder of "Joy In The Breakroom" Lilian wakes up every morning determined to let God shine in her despite her own flaws or surrounding circumstances. She is passionately taking “gratitude” to a new level in the corporate world while treasuring her family, committed to make a difference by leaving a legacy and humbly recognizing her mission of building-up every woman around her.

The pandemic was devastating for her corporate event planning company but the hardest hit was to lose her brother to COVID. However, "purpose" has become an internal force once again. She is recovering and has adapted her business strategies pivoting in new ways. Lilian will continue to fight daily for JOY, always convinced that she is a part of a MASTER PLAN much bigger than herself.

Joy In the Breakroom will continue to deliver GRATITUDE, spread JOY and deliver HOPE in the workplace!

What our clients, vendors  & business mentors say is what really matters!
