Hannah is the Sustainability Manager at American University, concentrating on outreach and communications with students, staff, and faculty.
Formerly, Hannah worked at the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council managing and coordinating the growth and quality of the USGBC Students
program. She focused on supporting the network of dedicated student and
professional volunteers that promote the USGBC Students program mission to
transform campuses, communities, and careers.
Before coming home to the Washington, DC area to work for USGBC, she was an
outdoor environmental educator with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. In this
position, she lived and worked on Smith Island, a small, secluded
watermen’s community in the Chesapeake Bay. Hannah taught groups of
students of all ages about Chesapeake Bay ecology and the importance of
environmental stewardship through multi-day field trips involving outdoor
adventures and Chesapeake Bay culture. Hannah also has experience working in
organic agriculture and as a field organizer on a congressional campaign,
which allowed her to explore many aspects of sustainability and advocacy.
Hannah graduated from the College of William and Mary with a degree in
Government and Environmental Studies, with a concentration in policy. She
enjoys hiking on the C&O canal, kayaking, and making crafts of any kind.
