Intent on revealing each site’s intrinsic qualities, Hannah enjoys the challenge of translating complex site-specific challenges into clear design solutions and in observing how a site evolves over time. Her nimble graphics and technical knowledge bring her projects to life – whether it’s in public outreach, permitting, client review, or through construction. Hannah often communicates with a sketch and a smile – and an exclamation point! Her ideal project is built work that creates lasting memories by forging an emotional connection between people and place.
An experienced designer and project manager, Hannah has worked on a wide range of project types, including design for urban riverfronts, public parks, and greenroofs; planning for campuses, public greenspaces, streetscapes, transportation; and restoration for riparian, forest, and wetland areas. Hannah’s recent work has focused on improving civic spaces in both institutional and public environments, and she is dedicated to designing for ecological and community resiliency.
Hannah holds a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and Bachelor of Science in Geology from University of Nebraska. She practiced landscape architecture in Minnesota, Massachusetts, and Vermont prior to her work at SE Group.
