Who is Ilana?

After graduating from the University of Kansas with a degree in Journalism and a minor in English, Ilana picked up and moved out west to Arizona to work as a Digital Producer for RightThisMinute, a nationally syndicated TV show showcasing the best videos on the web. Less than a year later, she was no longer just writing up headlines and copy to accompany show clips on the website, but running the site as the Digital Managing Editor and producing social-first video for their online audience.

Originally from South Florida, Ilana has lived and worked all over the U.S. and beyond. While at KU, she joined the writing staff at The Black Sheep Online, where she used her impeccable sense of humor to write relatable listicles, satire, and quizzes geared toward the college audience. Shortly after, she took over as Chief Campus Editor and ran the branch. She spent a summer interning at The Black Sheep's corporate offices in Chicago, and even had the chance to do an internship in Prague through KU's International Internship program.

Ilana hopes to continue her career in the digital media and entertainment industry. Her experience working in content management, publishing, writing, editing, social media, video production and TV production means she's developed a sharp editorial eye over the years, and has the creative chops to back it up.
