Hannah is from Cincinnati. She has a bachelor’s degree in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and a master’s in Health Promotion & Education, both from the University of Cincinnati. She loves her supportive parents and sister, and lives with her partner, Lukas, and their cat, Douglas.

As a Health Educator with Hamilton County Public Health, Hannah works with the following WeTHRIVE! communities: Amberley Village, Arlington Heights, Evendale, Newtown, Reading, Whitewater Township, and Woodlawn. Her area of focus is Environmental Health, and she’s involved with Safe Routes to School and the Connecting Active Communities Coalition.

Hannah loves participating in Walk to School Day with the Village of Woodlawn. “Interacting with students, school staff, and community leaders always inspires me,” she said.    

Why did you become a Health Educator? “I believe our biggest purpose in life is to help others. Being a Health Educator allows me to learn from community members and assist them with their goals- whatever they may be. That’s very rewarding for me.”

What do you like most about being a WeTHRIVE! Health Educator? “Interacting with people and seeing the passion they have for their community.”

Fun Fact: Hannah and Lukas will be moving soon to Portland, Oregon. She’ll be working for Upstream USA.
