Professional Summary

Hannah joined the Munroe-Meyer Institute’s recreational therapy team in fall of 2019. She was excited to join to the Munroe-Meyer family full-time in this role, as it was her experiences as a technician in the recreational therapy programs (2015-2019) that inspired her to enter the field. Hannah is passionate about improving the lives of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) through recreation and leisure. Hannah administrates the Art Excellence program, an art program for adults with IDD that seeks to develop art skills, build relationships, and improve quality of life. Hannah is also passionate about the pediatric population that MMI serves, especially children with medical fragilities. Hannah’s undergraduate background in speech-language pathology gives her insight into communication differences and allows her to improve participants’ functional communication in the context of recreation and leisure activities. Hannah is thrilled to be a member of the Munroe-Meyer family.
