Hannah has lived in Devon most of her life, apart from 3 years in London as National Director of Learning for the School for Social Entrepreneurs, where she set up the learning programme and regional Schools around the UK.
She has worked for Devon County Council , supporting youth work and adult learning and for the National Lottery as a grants assessor. Hannah's long experience of working with rural communities as a consultant in social enterprise and voluntary sector development was then used in East Devon, managing projects involving youth, older people, carers and asset-based community development.
Hannah lives in Exeter and is the volunteer Chair of the charity Exeter Community Centre Trust which operates a large, community-owned meetings space in the centre of the city. Hannah joined Devon Communities Together as a Project Manager in January 2021.
I love Devon because…
So many people that spent their early years here, but then left, love it so much they come back to live here again.
