Hannah was raised in Abilene, TX. She completed her Bachelor of Arts in English with a Sociology minor from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. Hannah loved volunteering for various ministries on Texas A&M’s campus as well as in her local church’s early childhood ministry.
During her time in her undergraduate studies, Hannah had the opportunity to intern at a local non-profit running a free English-language class for members of the Bryan community. After graduation, Hannah worked with children and families as an instructional assistant for a Pre-K/Head Start classroom where she was inspired by her colleagues’ commitment to caring for children who have experienced trauma. These experiences sparked her interest in the field of social work and in clinical work with children and families. During her first year in graduate school, Hannah gained experience in the school setting where she worked with students from many different backgrounds, including those at the Disciplinary Alternative Education Placement and those who were pregnant or parenting, and encouraged emotional development while connecting them with community resources. During her second year in graduate school, Hannah gained further experience through her work at another school, providing mental health resources and working with adolescents through anxiety, depression, familial relationships, trauma, and other mental health concerns. Hannah loves working with children, adolescents, and their families and is committed to providing a safe space for them to heal, learn, and grow.
In her free time, Hannah enjoys spending time with her husband Drew and their puppy, Penelope, and trying out new recipes to share with friends.
