Ilene most recently served as executive director of the Rensselaer County Historical Society in Troy, N.Y. Bringing a holistic perspective of historical organizations to the job, she also oversaw exhibitions, programs and collections as associate director at the Schenectady Museum and Suits-Bueche Planetarium (now the Museum of Innovation and Science, or MiSci) in Schenectady, N.Y.
