Birthday Interview with Our Fearless Leader, Ilana Ashley
It’s our fearless leader Ilana’s birthday month! We wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate the birthday girl and ask her some personal questions to mark another year of amazing achievements.
What are your hobbies?
I’ve loved taking barre fitness class for years and I’ve fallen in love with Pure Barre. Not only do the workouts keep me going when I’m running around for 15 hours on event days but my neighborhood studio also supports me with a community of passionate and inspirational women.
What was your favorite trip this past year?
Yellowstone National Park! Even while drenched and freezing, the amazing landscapes and majestic creatures made this vacation an incredibly awesome escape from city life in LA. Witnessing the iconic Old Faithful erupt and being caught in a Bison Jam are unique memories that will stay with me always.
What would be your last meal on earth?
Basically anything that involves gluten, carbs, and dairy. I was born in Illinois and I could seriously eat pizza everyday, so it would have to be Chicago-style deep-dish.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure is The Bachelor! Pretty much any show within The Bachelor Franchise and my absolute favorite is Bachelor in Paradise. I love binging seasons at a time, so shh….no spoilers please.
What are you most grateful for in this last year?
I can’t just name one thing because there are so many things I’m grateful for in my life. My top three are my friends and family who give me strength through their support and love, my talented IAE team who helps make dreams realities, and our amazing clients who become family. I feel immense gratitude for the way my life has unfolded so beautifully.
We at IAE are so lucky to have an incredible human like Ilana as our boss. We couldn’t imagine anyone else as the captain of our team. So here’s to another year of accomplishing goals and going for your dreams. We adore you, Ilana. Happy Birthday!
