During her undergraduate career, Hannah was awarded the Provost Scholarship and was very involved with the Provost Scholars program. She interned as a research assistant at the Horse Unit and later conducted undergraduate research evaluating the antibacterial properties of silver magnetic nanoparticles. As an undergraduate, Hannah was a student worker for the Shackouls Honors College. She also worked with the Education Department at the St. Louis Zoo. Hannah competed in the Academic Quadrathlon Team with the Department of Animal and Dairy Sciences when they placed fourth at regionals.

After graduating in May 2019, Hannah began working on the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree program offered through the College of Veterinary Medicine at Mississippi State University.

Hannah said of her time with SI, "The most rewarding thing about the Supplemental Instruction program was the relationships that I built with my students. I learned so much from them, and they always put a smile on my face,  even on my bad days. It is even more rewarding to run into my students now and hear that they did well in the class and to hear what they are doing now. Many of them have gone on to do really cool things, and I am very proud of them!"
