Hannah’s career is focused on helping women who suffer from eating disorders. Back in 2011, she had a rude awakening as a parent brought her daughter to Hannah’s employer for services. Hannah shares, “The mom took one look at me – standing at 5’4”, 309 pounds – and said, ‘you’re going to help my daughter overcome her eating disorder? I wanted to lose weight because I was a walking billboard for my problem. I set out on a journey that started with the Y and today I’m proud of what I have achieved.” Hannah has lost 150 pounds, has completed her first marathon and is preparing to run her first ultra marathon.
