Born in Independence, Hannah is a local to the area. Much of her time was spent in Corvallis while attending Santiam Christian High School. While there, she became very involved in theatre, student government, and volleyball.
The exchange students have always been close to her heart and dear friends of hers and she hopes to be one herself next year by studying abroad in Ecuador.
Her goals for her time here at WOU include becoming fluent in both ASL and Spanish.
A large amount of her volunteer time is spent at the Gilbert house in Salem where she prepares projects and teaches classes to children. Hannah enjoys dancing, cooking, and any sort of outdoor activity.
