Ilyena attended Union College ’14 where she joined the crew team as a walk-on her freshman year. She rowed in the Varsity crew boat for all of her four years, and was the team captain for her junior and senior years. Currently she is working in admissions at Proctor Academy and headed up the creation of the newly formed Proctor Rowing Team ’15. Fresh off of the water herself, she is excited to translate her passion for rowing into the LSRC program. Ilyena will be coaching the Spring session as well as two weeks in August.
