With a lifelong love of words, writing and schmoozing, it’s no surprise that Ilana has built an extensive career in communications.
As ZERO’s Director of Communications and Media Relations, Ilana collabs (read: schmoozes) with many teams and staff members – from fundraising to patient advocacy and more, her words and strategies aid ZERO’s mission to end prostate cancer.
Of course, Ilana’s job is more than schmoozing and creating pithy content – she looks for stories and new ways to tell them every day, and is always scheming up new and effective ways for ZERO to raise its public profile and build relationships, be it through the media (hello to any reporters reading this!), events, or even just chatting a stranger’s ear off (her apologies to said stranger).
Prior to ZERO, Ilana has held roles that led her to gain extensive experience in the #scicomm and health space. Her passion for communicating the wondrous world of the health and sciences led her to ZERO. At ZERO, she’ll continue communicating the organization’s important role in ending prostate cancer to existing and new audiences.
In her spare time, she’s probably adventuring around D.C. with her sister, catching live music, or pushing the limits of how many books you can check out from the library at once.
