Hannah is a native Oregonian who has lived in the Portland area most of her life. Right after high school she spent two years abroad living in Salzburg, Austria and Zurich, Switzerland working as an au pair. She discovered a love of languages while studying German and a desire to continue working with children as they develop their speech and language especially in multilingual homes. These interests led her to Portland State University where she graduated with her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences in December. She is looking to use this next year to gain practical experience in the field as she is preparing to apply to graduate programs in hopes of becoming a certified speech-language pathologist. As hobbies she enjoys rock climbing, bouldering, hiking, and many different types of dancing.
