While Hanna grew up swimming along the San Diego coastlines, it wasn’t until her college years that she found a calling for the outdoors. With a one-way ticket to Santiago, Chile, Hanna began a 6 month long solo adventure in South America. After spending the maximum amount of time her visa permitted in Bolivia, Hanna was compelled to continue her academics at UC Berkeley. After graduation, Hanna went on to work as a backpacking guide in the High Sierras, a lead instructor for Outward Bound California. In her off time, Hanna can be found climbing, knitting, and looking at pictures of adoptable dogs on the internet.
