Hanna is an Office Assistant at MSC, where she assists with all the operational nuts and bolts in the Oakland office. She grew up in the Bay Area and graduated from UC Davis with a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science & Management. At UC Davis, she worked to improve campus sustainability and zero waste practices, including starting a program to donate surplus produce grown in agricultural classes to local food assistance organizations. Since graduating in 2014, she has worked at various nonprofits in Oakland, with focuses ranging from food justice to women’s health to immigration. At Food Shift, she assisted with developing a program that trains and employs formerly homeless individuals to cook meals out of wholesome but otherwise-wasted produce. She got her start at MSC through working as an Office Assistant at Positive Women’s Network (PWN), a fiscally-sponsored project of MSC that supports women living with HIV. In addition to working at MSC, she also currently works as an Employment Specialist at the Vietnamese American Community Center of the East Bay (VACCEB), where she supports immigrants and refugees in getting jobs. She has enjoyed working at a diverse range of organizations, and it has challenged her to find connections between seemingly isolated social justice issues. Connecting all her work experience is the common desire to help underserved communities access resources, opportunities, and justice. In her free time, Hanna enjoys going on hikes, playing music, and eating pie.
