Hannah joined the Practical Farmers of Iowa in May 2019 as a member of Green Iowa AmeriCorps. In spring 2019 she graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in animal science and a minor in environmental studies. Her duties with PFI will include assisting program staff with field days.
Native to the Chicago area, her interests in agriculture and the environment originate from her love of animals, the outdoors, and her lifelong membership with Girl Scouts. These interests have brought her various unforgettable experiences such as working with Iowa City Parks and Recreation in 2017 and spending the summer of 2018 working on a sheep dairy farm in rural Montana.
In her free time Hannah enjoys spending time outside, being with friends, cooking and working out. She is excited to expand her knowledge and experiences with agriculture and hopes to someday have a hobby farm of her own.
