Originally from New Jersey (and now back there again after 15 years in NYC), Ilysia graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a BFA in Advertising Design. After a few years with advertising agencies, Ilysia finally landed in publishing where she spent 8 years as a Designer and Art Director at Vanity Fair. After having her son, she decided to give working for herself a try…and it stuck. She now runs her own design agency, and couldn’t be happier to be able to do what she loves AND get to see her kids throughout the day.
Ilysia has been the designer for all things Big City Moms for 3+ years. As a mother formerly living in the big city, she wholeheartedly believes in the support, education, and community that BCM provides…and is thrilled to be a part of such an amazing team.
