Originally from Marin County, Hanna was an active volunteer throughout high school and worked with organizations like Amigos de las Americas, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the Milo Foundation. She ventured south for college and graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a B.A. in Economics and Accounting. On campus, she was an involved student employee and sorority member and felt spoiled living in Santa Barbara with such immediate access to the beach. Prior to joining Sean Lucq’s team in late 2018 as an analyst, Hanna worked as an auditor with Deloitte & Touche in San Francisco.
What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
This is probably a tie between getting my CPA license (specifically passing all of the exams) and living in Oaxaca, Mexico with a host family for eight weeks at 16 years old.
What’s the most non-traditional job you’ve ever had?
For a few months in college, I cleaned a hot yoga studio in exchange for a discounted membership. The job was surprisingly almost as much of a workout as the class, and not to mention nearly as sweaty.
What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
My senior year of college, I lived in a house with 18 girls. Because everybody always asks, it was not a sorority chapter house, and it only had 6 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. Despite the perpetual dirty dishes, the house had its perks, like a hot tub in the backyard that overlooked the ocean.
