Family & Community
In 2002, Lana was named to the Arizona Business Journal's "Forty Under 40" for business success and community involvement. Her past involvement as chairwoman and board member of the Boys & Girls Club of the East Valley has twice earned her the National Service to Youth Award from Boys & Girls Clubs of America. She recently spent time on the board of Villa Musica, a non-profit music school inspiring people of all ages to explore the joy and life-long value of music. She is particularly interested and supportive of Musical BiographiesTM an encore program, developed through a partnership with the UCSD Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. This program is designed to bring together people with Alzheimer’s disease, their care-givers and family in a unique multi-sensorial experience that centers around music and memory. Lana feels a personal connection to this as she has dealt with many clients and even family members experiencing Alzheimers and other forms of dementia. Lana also enjoys playing golf, which allows her to support many local charities through tournament play as well as her league participation with Golf for Cause in Arizona and the LPGA Amateur Golf Association in both Phoenix, Arizona and San Diego, California. She is also a strong advocate for animal welfare, supporting rescue organizations (including Baja Animal Sanctuary), pet-related small businesses, The FACE Foundation, a San Diego based organization that has partnered with veterinarians to provide financial grants for animal owners who are unable to afford the cost of their pet's emergency or critical care, and local chapters of the American Veterinary Medical Association in Southern California, Arizona and Colorado. She and her husband, Andrew Trujillo, spend time in both Scottsdale, AZ and San Diego, CA, along with their newest canine companion, Sasha Banks -- IG: @SashaBankstheDog, a rescued American Staffordshire Terrier. Sasha Baja Banks (named after a WWE female wrestler) joined the family during the COVID-19 Pandemic in October 2020 after Lana and Andrew lost their long-time companion Joan Jett in September 2020. They are all three avid sports fans and proud Denver Broncos season ticket holders.
