Ioana graduated with a law degree from West University of Timisoara in Romania, but decided to pursue another path. After her studies, she spent some time traveling the world, gaining perspective and working various jobs. Out of all the places she visited, she settled on Boston as it had a familiar European feel with American sensibilities. Ioana credits her traveling experience as being formative in her journey of learning about herself and having the freedom to pursue her passions, eventually lead her back to her family roots. While growing up in Romania, her mother ran a successful real estate business which she was exposed to at a young age. Eventually she realized that her natural outgoing personality and helpful nature would lend itself to career in real estate as well. On her days off, she enjoys playing sports, hiking, exploring and adventuring around New England.
