“I believe there are many disparities facing women and youth across the world. Working in public health is a way to serve in the healthcare field that I have loved my whole life while fighting for the equity and justice that we all deserve. VCU gives me the opportunity to work closely with college students, youth, and women all in the same location. The Richmond community offers me the opportunity to start something that matters through innovate health promotion and prevention programming. I truly value to hands-on experiences of the MPH program as well as the years of varying experiences that the faculty, staff, and other students have to share.”
Hannah spends equal time between her two homes in Richmond and Dinwiddie County with her two dogs, Jake and Oreo. Hannah is a proud advocate of self-care which includes her own processes of writing fiction, watching medical and Sci-Fi dramas, and singing Christmas music all year around.
