If You Can Dream It You Can Do It
Hannah was raised in a small village in Southwest, Alaska. She grew up along the Naknek River, known for its World Class Wild Salmon Fishery, thriving Grizzly Bear population, and the expanse of Arctic Tundra that surrounds the area.
Enduring the extremes of long, cold, dark winters and the hard, intense work of lasting summer days, instilled a sense of deep respect and love for the wild world, testing Strenth of Will, Adaptability, Independence and Vision. At the same time, life in an isolated, rural arcti village sparked her desire for Adventure and Creative Expression, encouraging Boundless Dreaming a Rich Imagination and the Power of Spirit.
In College, Hannah studied Art in its various forms of expression including modern dance, theatre, art history, photography, music, drawing, painting, sculpture and ceramics. She graduated from the Univeristy of Montana in 2007 with a Fine Arts Degree and Minor in Biology.
Hannah also studied Natural Horsemanship and spent years after college pursuing her passion to work with horses. She traveled the World fulfilling her dreams, learning the Art of Horsemanship while emersing herself in exotic lands, new cultures, and foreign languages.
Hannah lived and worked in Hawaii, New Zealand, Egypt, and Australia learning various styles of Life and Horsemanship. During this Global Immersion, she took her journey to Sea, learning to SCUBA Dive along the Great Barrier Reef and the Fiji Islands.
She also developed a taste for the Spiritual, exploring the Ancient Pyramids and Temples of Egypt, venturing through the Sacred Chappels and Cathedrals of Paris, and touring old Castles and Relics from her very own Ancestral Heritage near Amsterdam and the Netherlands.
