Before joining Putney, Hannah spent six years studying the social behavior of monkeys and managing a field station in northwestern Costa Rica. She has since led programs in Costa Rica, Peru, Ecuador, Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji. She also served as the director of the Middle School Costa Rica program and the director of Pre-College programs in the U.S. and abroad. Hannah oversees leader hiring and has designed numerous programs for Putney and Putney partner organizations. A Vermont native, Hannah hopes to instill in her two young children a deep love and respect for the natural world, and loves hiking and snowshoeing, all things animal-related and, of course, traveling. Hannah speaks Spanish and German.
