Hannah joined Living Habitats in 2022 as a landscape designer and project manager. She brings four years of experience working on the East Coast with a focus on complex, large-scale projects and masterplans for universities, government agencies and municipalities. She is an Illinois native, an avid lover of Midwest flora and fauna and believes that successful landscapes celebrate the spirit of a place while weaving culture and nature back into the environment.
Hannah is a 2016 Olmsted Scholar and received her BLA from the University of Illinois Urbana – Champaign and her MLA from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Her work at both universities and a semester abroad in the Netherlands focused on contextual research, regional landscape planning and conservation-based design concepts. Outside of practice, she enjoys mentoring landscape architecture students, teaching others about the wonders of the profession, and advocating for the importance of design in all aspects of life.
