Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. I wish I could sit down with you and listen to your story, but let me start by telling you a little bit about me.
In 2012, I had a small group of high school senior gals who went off to college. Each week, I would have 2-3 emails in my inbox from a few of them. They would email with questions about things they were struggling with in college or questions they had. After a while, I started noticing a trend in their questions. They were all asking similar things. So, with their permission, a began a blog called “Dear Hanna” where I simplified their questions, wrote answers, and posted them for all the interwebs to read.
Pretty quickly I began receiving emails and questions from girls I had never met, at colleges I had never even heard of! With a master’s degree in Higher Education & Student Affairs and a decade of working at several different colleges, I felt I had a lot of experience and insight to share with these girls from all over–and had a blast doing it!
After a few years in, I started receiving questions that didn’t necessarily relate only to college girls, as my college girls were graduating and growing up! So, now I write about all kinds of things: college girl problems, adulting, dating, marriage, faith– really anything within the realm of the female Christian journey.
BUT my 10 years of college mentoring is wrapped up in a tidy package called The College Girl’s Survival Guide.
