During her last semester at the Cronkite School, Hannah worked in collaboration with the Arizona Broadcast Association and Cronkite News Investigative Team to create the DuPont and Emmy Award-winning documentary on the increase in Heroin use across the state of Arizona. The final piece called Hooked: Heroin's Hold on Arizona aired on 33 broadcast TV stations in Phoenix, Tucson and Yuma and 90 of the state's radio stations.

Hannah grew up from third grade on in Canton, Ohio and attended Jackson High School. She was born in Goldsboro, NC., but made several long-range relocations as a young girl- including one outside the country, where she attended a French elementary school in Quebec, Canada. Her father is a retired U.S. Air Force pilot who now flies for the Timken Company. He and Hannah's mother, live in Canton, OH. Hannah has to make an extra effort to see her middle sister these days-- she married a Navy sailor after graduating from Miami University in Oxford, OH. Hannah's littlest sister currently attends University of Cincinnati.

Hannah's three favorite things are chocolate, pink and hiking. In her spare time, Hannah enjoys being outdoors or spending time with friends and family. Hannah is a proud Cleveland Indians fan, and she married into being a fan of University of Georgia football.
