Lana is originally from Tiraspol, Moldova, and immigrated with her family to the U.S. in 1990. Her personal immigration experience shaped her academic and professional careers, which eventually led Lana to Latin America. In Santiago, Chile, Lana served as a Fulbright Fellow focusing on Peruvian female migrants, and in the U.S., Lana worked with unaccompanied Hispanic minors detained at the border. For over a decade, Lana has worked at a government consulting firm in Washington D.C. where she focuses on healthcare and immigration issues. She has worked in Mexico and on the Southwest Border, and most recently oversaw Spanish-language content for Obamacare to ensure that millions of Spanish speaking consumers have access to healthcare. Outside of work, Lana serves on the HIAS Board of Directors, on JDC's Russian Speaking Jewish Advisory Board, and has co-chaired Entwine trips to China and Israel. Most recently, in partnership with Amplifier, Lana facilitated a pop-up giving circle at LAZOS to bring collective philanthropy to Latin America. Lana is fluent in English, Russian, and Spanish, and loves to bring people of diverse backgrounds together for meaningful conversations and experiences.
