Meet Hanna: Teen Engagement Specialist

 Permanent link   All Posts

hanna-skylineHi! My name is Hanna and I am one of Springboard’s Teen Engagement Specialists. I grew up in Mequon, Wisconsin and went to Butler University in Indianapolis (Go Dawgs!). I moved to Chicago two years ago and currently live in Old Town. I love to travel (ask me about Seville, Spain), try new restaurants, take advantage of Chicago summers, and watch Butler and Marquette basketball games. You can find me around town catching a movie at ArcLight, working out at Studio Three, or planning my next trip!

Prior to Springboard, I worked in the Young Leadership Division of JUF helping young adults find their place in the Jewish community. In that role, I planned programs and events and helped fundraise for the JUF Annual Campaign.

I would love to connect with you! I want to hear about your interests and see if any of the amazing programs in our community are a good fit for you. Also, if there are any cool, new social media trends and apps or “hip” lingo 😉, please keep me in the loop! Let me know if you want to grab coffee. Ice cream works too, obviously 😊
