Ilona has been a Rutgers Master Gardener for over a decade. She moved from a career as an economist to an avocation in horticulture and credits this to an expensive landscape project that inspired her to learn more about the plants on which she was spending so much money. She now gives talks for Rutgers and for the Friends of the Frelinghuysen Arboretum, where she is on the board and manages their popular annual plant sale fundraiser. Ilona gardens in Chester, New Jersey, Zone 6B.
