Ilsa, originally from northwest Oregon, relocated to Knoxville after deciding to pursue a bachelor's degree in exercise science from The University of Tennessee. After receiving her Master of Science degree in nursing from Marquette University in 2014, she returned to her adopted home of Knoxville.

Her experience with orthopedic patients started well before nursing as a student athletic trainer with the Lady Vols. From there, she continued to pursue supporting aspects of surgery, including personal training, inpatient rehab, and critical care surgery. Alongside Dr. Joshua Moss, Ilsa continues to support patients in the hospital, operating room, and clinical settings. Free time is spent predominately with her husband and two dogs as she continues to cheer on her Oregon Ducks while living in Big Orange Country.
