Allie Ilagan

(née Alexandra Harcharek)


My professional life has been flavored by 5+ years of food writing, stints in news and publishing, and now communications at The Wharton School.

Personally and professionally, I care deeply about social equality, advocacy for universal human rights, and the intersection of people, profits, and purpose.

In my spare time, I blog about marathon training and personal health on Navel Gazing. I also used to write A Food Coma. Today my house has an abundance of cats, vintage video game consoles, and glitter.

I live for adventure, but fail terribly at small talk.
