– Born and raised in Indonesia, Ilona Sianturi-Hastie met and married her American husband in Indonesia and moved to the United States to raise her family. After a few years of working as a lead preschool teacher, she knew she had a passion for education and working with children.

I immediately knew it was something I could achieve. I have always been an advocate for education, especially with my own children.”
