Hannah comes to Ridley most recently from studies at the University of St Andrews in Scotland, where she obtained a Masters in Analytic and Exegetical Theology, and is currently completing doctoral studies in Theology.

Before the move with her family to Scotland, Hannah served as Assistant Curate at St. Michael’s Anglican Church, North Carlton. She has a Bachelor of Arts with honours in Philosophy from Monash University, a Master of Divinity from Ridley College, and was ordained in the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne in 2015.

Growing up in the Anglican church in Melbourne, it was at a youth camp during high school that Hannah heard God’s call to study theology and serve the church. Since then she has served in ministry in various churches across Melbourne, particularly with young adults, and with children and families. Hannah was involved in the establishment of the Ridley Women’s Preaching Network, and currently serves as Director of Logia St Andrews, seeking to support and develop women students there.

Hannah is married to Tom, who trained as an economist and works as a consultant. They have two primary-aged children.
