Hannah is a member of Jackson Spalding’s business development team, juggling many different projects on any given day. She’s used to all the multitasking after supporting other professional service firms in the Northeast.
She joined JS in 2019, following four years in Washington, D.C. with two law firms. At Covington and Burling LLP, she executed high-profile strategic events, prepared collateral materials and managed the client database for the firm’s 600 litigators. During her time at Wiley Rein LLP, she was the firm’s primary liaison for the Complex Insurance Claims Litigation Association (CICLA).
A highlight of Hannah’s legal experience was volunteering on high-profile pro bono cases. She helped process victims’ claims from the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally in 2012. She also spent six months supporting the winning appeal of female inmates who were deprived proper medical care at Fluvanna Correctional Center.
If her path into Jackson Spalding seems circuitous, it’s because she entered college thinking she’d follow in her Dad’s footsteps as an insurance broker. She earned a B.S. in Business Administration from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, majoring in Marketing and Risk Management. Hannah tried the risk management side during her entry-level years but leaned into her marketing training when insurance and law limited her opportunities for creative expression.
As a newcomer to Atlanta, Hannah is discovering the city’s many restaurants and taking weekend excursions to vacation spots nearby. Despite her exposure to risk management, she likes to flirt with adventure. She’s already mastered climbing to the top of a human pyramid while water skiing, and hot-air ballooning is next on the list.
