In general, this is culture dependent. If de Lis is of Dutch origin, then "Ms. de Lis" is correct, although you could even go so far as to maintain the Dutch title which I think is "Mevr." or "Mevrouw".
However... for just about every professional interaction I've ever had, "Dear Sasha" would be absolutely fine.
