As a Program Coordinator for the Erb Institute, Hannah’s primary focus is on the Erb Fellows program. Her role acts as a major support to the Institute as well as its students and ensures the execution of the Fellows platform.
Hannah’s deep passion for finding creative solutions to food, social, and environmental-related issues in communities fueled an educational and professional trajectory with strong notes of design thinking, civil discourse, and empathetic listening. She brings a skillset involving program coordination and management, mentoring, creativity, attention to detail, and research from her previous roles as: a Program Director for a small nonprofit called the Dewings Center, a Local Storyteller for a social venture called FoodCircles, and as a Teaching Assistant for Danielle Lake at Grand Valley State University. Along with her skillset, Hannah’s love for creating spaces for meaningful connections and supporting programs integrate into and augment the Erb Fellows experience at the University of Michigan.
