Ileana Rodriguez - Development Director
Ileana was born in New York City and grew up in the booming metropolis of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. She has a BA in Art History and a BM in Music from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Her band was really big in Japan. She's an artist and designer at heart, and has an on-again, off-again romance with running her own handmade goods business. She spent several years working in the field of marketing and communications and ran her first successful fundraising campaign at the tender age of 15.
Ileana joined Toxic Free NC first as a volunteer, then a staff member in 2010, putting her skillset to work on grassroots fundraising and making our website and communications sparkle. In her spare time, she loves to grow, cook and can fresh organic local produce. When she's not in the office, look for her at the farmer's market, at the beach, or on her bicycle somewhere in between.
