Hannah is a freelance editor and English teacher. Originally from the US, she has lived in Italy and the Netherlands and is now based in Germany. She has a bachelor’s degree in History and a master’s degree in Arts Management, both of which have had a research focus on public art.
She has worked in cultural and non-profit organizations, where she honed skills in project management, marketing, and intercultural dynamics. She has been interested in plain language since 2016 when she led a project to simplify accreditation documents for an international education firm. She believes plain language is a powerful tool and should be the standard for engaging the public.
She is a member of ACES: The Society for Editing and the Society for Editors and Proofreaders. She has completed rigorous editing training with the Publishing Training Centre.
In her free time, Hannah is active in her local writers’ group, goes for walks in the forest with her dog, and enjoys hunting for antiques in flea markets and thrift stores.
