Personal

Hannah spends most of her free time outdoors hiking, biking, or just relaxing and reading a good book with her dog, Rumour. She also loves all things music, so when she is not enjoying nature, she is likely attempting to hone her abilities on the guitar or piano. Once she becomes frustrated in her attempts, she leaves it to the professionals and seeks out live music elsewhere.
