Her Community activities mostly centre around horses. Hannah is an active member of Blue Sky Cowboys Club which focuses on obstacle horse training horsemanship. She also provides horse riding lessons to a 13 year old who lacks confidence along with other shortcomings without monetary reward.

The funds for Hannah’s award were raised by members of the Geelong sub committee of the AOF who wanted to repay their own awards by providing an opportunity for another worthy applicant. Their award is named in honour of Bruce Kinnersley, a hardworking member of their group who recently passed away following a long illness.

Hannah has approached her Employer Viva Energy hoping to arrange employment with a subsidiary company in Canada.
