About Hannah

Having grown up on BC’s west coast, Hannah has nurtured a passion for old-growth forests since a young age. During her years at Simon Fraser University, Hannah started and coordinated the SFU Ancient Forest Committee, engaging with students on campus about the importance of protecting BC’s endangered ancient forests.

After graduating, she joined the Ancient Forest Alliance – which had just recently been founded – as a staff member, and worked for seven years as Vancouver Grassroots Coordinator and Researcher/Writer. During the past few years, Hannah has pursued her fascination with the ocean and sailing, crewing this spring on a Pacific Ocean crossing from Mexico to French Polynesia. She is now back in beautiful BC combining work as a marine naturalist, writer and circus aerialist, and finding solace in the company of ancient trees.

Working to protect BC’s endangered old-growth forests and ensure a sustainable, second-growth forest industry.
