Ilana grew up in the North Suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Her favorite show she was a part of at Illinois was Hit the wall where she was the lead singer in a band. Through that show she fully understood why it is important to tell history through art. Along with acting and singing, she is also a song writer. She is currently working on an album to publish in the near future. Ilana's plan is to move to LA, work in TV/Film, and continue to write and perform her own music.
