Ilana just finished her Associate Degree for Transfer at Foothill College and is getting ready to pursue her bachelor’s in Psychology at UC Berkley.
Ilana has spent the past year working, both in the school and home setting, as a Registered Behavioral Technician (RBT) with children on the Autism Spectrum. She is also one of the executive directors of the Miracle League of SF Peninsula, a nonprofit baseball league for both youth and adults with special needs.
Ilana is very passionate about helping children with special needs especially when it comes to movement. She believes that with the right support and care every child can exceed expectations. After her bachelor’s degree, Ilana plans to pursue a graduate degree in pediatric physical therapy and specialize in pediatric disability.
Her favorite thing is seeing a child smile when they do something they did not know was possible. In her free-time, Ilana enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and dogs.
