A graduate of Chatham University, Hannah Fierle majored in Political Science, with minors in Professional Writing, Pre-Law, and Applied Data Science Analytics. While she was in high school, she was a member of the National Honor Society and regularly volunteered as a classroom aide in her district’s elementary and middle schools. Seeing how challenging it could be for teachers to meet the needs of all of the students in a classroom, she gained an appreciation and a newfound respect for the value of teaching as a profession. Hannah is an avid reader and a lifelong lover of creative writing. She also enjoys working with animals and children and playing tabletop games with friends and family. She was a member of our East End Cohort and served with Oakland Planning and Development Corporation as the Operations Coordinator.
