Hannah is from Cleveland, Ohio where she grew up riding her Quarter Horse mare, Ellie, at Rising River Farm. Hannah graduated from John Carroll University with a Bachelor’s in Psychology and worked in the special needs field for a few years before going back to school to pursue her love of equine healthcare. As a veterinary technology student, Hannah interned at both the Cleveland Equine Clinic and the Equine Specialty Hospital and then went on to earn her degree in Veterinary Technology. She became a Licensed Veterinary Technician in August 2018.
Hannah joined the Virginia Equine team in May of 2018 and works primarily with Dr. Neist. Her favorite parts of being a licensed technician are patient care, emergency medicine, and building relationships with both patients and clients. Outside of work, Hannah enjoys being outdoors, reading, traveling, and has a passion for the therapeutic riding field.
