Hannah is so excited to join the Santa Barbara Hillel community! She grew up in the sunny suburbs of Los Angeles before spending four years as a Banana Slug at UC Santa Cruz (yes, the Banana Slug is a real mascot). Trading her flip flops and shorts for snow boots and down jackets, Hannah relocated to Boston to pursue her graduate studies at Brandeis University's Hornstein Program, receiving a dual masters degree in Jewish Professional Leadership and Near Eastern and Judaic Studies. In her spare time, Hannah can be found jamming to a wide variety of music, favorites including the Grateful Dead or any classic 90s pop. Hannah is always willing and eager to chat on topics ranging from the continued influence of Mean Girls in modern culture to how to prepare for a Walking Dead-style zombie apocalypse. Hannah is looking forward to returning to the best coast, creating meaningful relationships with the students at Santa Barbara Hillel and helping others forge their own relationship to both the Hillel community and Jewish life!
