Hannah is an American talk show host, stylist, businesswoman, writer, mother, daughter, sister and friend. She has a passion for people and their stories and a God given gift for connecting with people from all walks of life. No stranger to hardship, Hannah is as a staunch advocate for transformational positive and spiritual change, which is the focus for her new show, ‘Hannah Talk’.
Noted for her compassionate but straight-talking style, Hannah’s work promotes a new kind of beauty— one from the inside out.
Born into a close-knit family in Ben Lomond, California, Hannah later moved to Hamilton, Montana. Hannah became a mother at 18, married and then divorced nine years later.
Seeking a new life she moved to LA where she found herself alone with a 14 year old son—whom she adores and regards as her daily inspiration to strive to be a better person—with all of the challenges that entails. Fortunately, her effervescent personality and stylist skills enabled her to make friends and forge a career for herself, but her experience had left her with empathy for others encountering similar challenges.
A successful stylist for 18 years, Hannah has worked with clients, including high profile people and celebrities, in Montana, LA, Las Vegas, San Diego, New York and Miami. Many clients termed their hair appointments as ‘Hannah time’—a therapy session of sorts! It’s on this ‘stage’ that Hannah honed her personal, no-holds-barred interview technique, and was told many times to consider a career in media.
Eventually, she hired a TV hosting coach and discovered that she was a natural in front of the camera. Soon Hannah was co-hosting ‘Sanctuary of Style’, a style and fashion blog with an emphasis on letting your inner beauty shine. Reaching the masses, viewers loved her positive, humorous and down-to-earth approach.
Then in 2011 a serious car accident sidelined Hannah’s career, confidence and view on life. It took months of support and no small degree of courage to get back on her feet, but despite enduring medical complications, Hannah threw herself into her work. First she hosted ‘Watch 305’ then moved onto ‘Press Pass’ where she interviewed high profile sports stars in their own spaces rather than within the confines of a studio. This more intimate behind-the-scenes approach struck Hannah as something she truly loved and wanted to pursue.
While the accident had tested her relationships, her faith and even her will to live; looking back she believes it gave her the gift of perspective and a new sense of purpose.
She became an Author of “Living The Invisible Disability” as her new quest for life is to help others!
Although Hannah began her career in an industry obsessed with superficial beauty, she rediscovered her passion for connecting with people from all walks of life in a deep, meaningful and sincere way to help them discover their inner strength and beauty. Through her show ‘Hannah Talk’ Hannah digs a little deeper to share the real stories of both regular people and celebrities, giving them a voice and helping them overcome hardships, in a bid to change lives and inspire us all.
