Ilana Blitzstein, founder of WestLACarseats.com, has been interested in car seat safety for many years. As a preschool teacher, nanny and aunt, she has helped many friends and relatives select and install car seats for their children.
In August 2011, Ilana completed a 40-hour LAPD Police Officer Safety Training Course, based on a curriculum established by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. She received her certification from Safe Kids Worldwide.
When not installing car seats, Ilana enjoys baking (visit her baking blog at IlanasOven.com), photography, and spending time with Lucy,a Bichon Frise and Charlie,a Dachshund mix.
