Illah Schalles

Member Services Coordinator, Back on My Feet Los Angeles

Illah joined Back on My Feet as a Volunteer in February 2015. In just a few months she became the Lead for Team US Vets in her hometown of Long Beach, bringing her smile and laughter to every early morning run. Although she is self admittedly not the fastest runner, she strives for constant improvement using running as a catalyst for growth in all areas of life. Illah believes that it is not merely the act of running itself, but the determination, discipline, and with Back on My Feet, the camaraderie, that allows for a redefinition of what we are capable of as runners, teammates, and as a community.

Illah is very excited to engage in this new role, supporting and continuing to grow Back on My Feet in our Greater Los Angeles community.
