Originally from Florida, Ilana moved to New York City to pursue a career in fashion. She earned a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Marketing from LIM College. After several years in fashion PR, she felt a change was needed and shifted her focus to community building and operations. She worked her way up to Chief of Staff at Uplift Studios. While there, she further developed a long-lasting passion for helping women and building a strong sense of community through various specialty programs.
Ilana served Luminary as the Community Director and is proud to say she was one of the company's founding staff members.
Most recently, Ilana served as the Operations and Accounts Manager of CJC Insights, a strategic communications and public relations agency that focuses on female founders and minority-owned businesses.
For Ilana, these experiences have cultivated a lasting passion for supporting and empowering women-owned businesses.
