Hannah has been known for her sincere desire, at a young age, to live out the meaning of her name “being full of grace and prayer.” Childhood highlights include: humid summers serving on Kanakuk Kamp staff, and investing in a year of Bible School through Torchbearer Bible Schools International (Bodenseehof and Capernwray Hall).
Hannah is a licensed Social Worker. Before her time at Colonial Presbyterian as Foster Adopt Coordinator, her experience included: International Orphan Care (Ukraine, Moldova, Romania); Foster Care Case Management at KVC Behavioral Health Care; and working at Children’s Mercy Hospital on the PICU floor serving as a family resource support worker. Hannah is also a certified TIPS-MAPP instructor.
Hannah loves working at Colonial Presbyterian. Her favorite activities include teaching TIPS-MAPP (the required course to become a foster home in the State of Kansas), leading our monthly Foster Mom’s and Dad’s support groups, and coordinating dozens of volunteers to serve at Respite Night (Foster Adopt Parents Night Out). She also treasures the chance to come alongside the many families who serve as licensed foster homes – to provide encouragement and support to their critical role of caring for children in foster care.
Hannah loves children, which is why she has four of her own. When she is not refereeing trampoline turns, supervising craft paint projects, or “refining the people skills” of her own little people, she can be found trying to desperately cultivate a green thumb in her flower garden.
Some of Hannah’s favorite books focus on compassion to those living in poverty, as well as support for individuals involved in Foster Care & Adoption: Can You Drink the Cup, Henri Nouwen; Tatoo’s On the Heart, Gregory Boyle; The Family Nobody Wanted, Helen Doss; Wounded Children, Healing Homes, Jayne Schooler; The Whole Brain Child, Daniel Seigel.
