Ilana Recca

Ilana Recca, RN

Nurse Manager

After completing her nursing degree at New York University Rory Meyers School of Nursing, Ilana spent two years at a nurse on a medical-surgical floor at Mount Sinai Hospital. She then moved to the burn intensive care unit at New York Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center, where she worked with critically ill adults and pediatric patients for four years.

During her final year at Weill Cornell, she also took a per diem position as a nurse in their in vitro fertilization clinic. It was there that she discovered her love for the fertility field, and that experience inspired her to pursue a career in fertility medicine. Ilana is currently continuing her education at Hunter College, where she’s enrolled in their Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program.

Joining Extend Fertility fulfilled Ilana’s desire to work in a smaller, more intimate setting, as opposed to the large hospital setting she was used to. She is especially excited to work at Extend Fertility because of our focus on new research in the egg freezing field, and our dedication to offering the most cutting-edge technology and techniques. As a member of our team, she’s proud to be part of a constantly evolving industry that’s doing meaningful work, enabling women to have children at a time that works best for them.
