Hannah serves as a Project Assistant for the Latin America and Caribbean Environmental Support Services Contract (LAC ESSC) at EI. She brings her experience in finance and grants management with Latin American countries to support the contract’s core program management.

Prior to joining EI, Hannah was a financial analyst at Partners in Health. She served as the primary finance contact with site teams in Peru, Lesotho, and other Latin American countries. Hannah also worked on the hyper-local scale, supporting community development for the Columbia Heights neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Her experience managing and implementing community events alongside local partners gave her valuable experience in organizing projects and working with stakeholders.

Hannah brings a people-first and empathetic approach to her work and interactions; she believes collaboration and trusting partnerships are the best ways to make sustainable impact. Being an Asian American and having studied abroad in Chile, she strives to bring her cultural sensitivity to EI and strengthen her project management skills in the international development sphere.
