Hannah graduated from Hillsdale College in 2007 with majors in History and Sociology and a minor in Classical Studies. She had planned to head straight for law school, but after a few detours, she ended up teaching an LSAT class for Kaplan.

When she’s not teaching Kaplan students, you’ll probably find Hannah spending time with her daughters or cooking something delicious.
