Hannah has a BA in religion from Bryn Athyn College and an M.Div from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA. She has a unit of Clinical Pastoral Education within an emergency department setting at the Veterans Administration.
Hannah’s experience includes non-profit work in Thailand with Warm Heart Worldwide and management of social media and communications with Friends of Refugees in Clarkston, GA. She maintained a real estate license for five years and managed sales in real estate along with creating and executing real estate contracts in the northeast Georgia area.
In 2016, she participated in her own personal social justice work with victim-offender mediation. This mediation was conducted in Port Arthur, TX between herself and one of the offenders who murdered her brother in 2000. Due to this work and the realization of prison conditions she has stood in protest of the death penalty in the state of Georgia and has advocated for the rights of those within the prison industrial complex.
In 2017 Hannah led a community discussion on the removal of war memorials to confederate soldiers. She participated with Hate Free Decatur and pursued the removal of symbols that represent oppression and subjugation of certain races of people. In 2018, the culmination of that work resulted in the Dekalb County resolution to remove the monument and replace it with a contextually accurate historical marker.
Hannah maintains a feminist theology and socially justice minded Facebook page and speaks live from that channel weekly. She is an avid lover of Skittles, a single mom who enjoys the occasional episode of Chuggington with her son and reads books constantly. She is tattooed, slightly foul-mouthed and prefers heels to tennis shoes.
