Hannah grew up in Chicago, Illinois, constantly yearning for more time in the woods. She earned her degree in Biology from Colorado College, where she was highly involved in the school’s outdoor program and climbing gym. Hannah has since lived in many Colorado mountain towns, where she has been building her experience climbing rock, snow, and ice, skiing, painting, and working as a potter. Hannah has worked as an Outward Bound Instructor for several seasons in Colorado, Ecuador, and Alaska. Hannah loves geeking out about all sort of things, particularly birds, lichens, mushrooms, and compost.
