Hannah Crosby began her role as Program Coordinator for the Compassionate Care Initiative in February 2013; however, she is not new to the School of Nursing. After graduating from the College of Wooster in 2008 with her B.A. in Communication Studies, Hannah started her career as a Communications Intern, which led to a full-time position in October 2009, as the Project Manager of a three-year, $1.2 million HRSA grant. During that time, Hannah also provided administrative support for two other grants, as well as for the School of Nursing's Global Initiatives Office.
In 2012, Hannah received the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Innovation for her work on the Healthy Work Environment Taskforce, which was initiated by the staff at the School of Nursing in 2011, and now includes faculty representation. Through this effort and dialogue with her colleagues, Hannah has become even more mindful of the importance of balance and self-care in day-to-day life, in order to thrive and be able to be truly present for others.
