New to the Training and Team Development (T&TD) team in 2021, Hanne brings years of practical and technical experience as an Outdoor Leadership Educator and Challenge Course manager working with youth, teens, and adults. From running low and high element challenge courses, to creatively using the outdoors as a classroom for students, Hanne has a natural ability to connect with people of all ages because she truly values bringing out the best in others. In Hanne’s words, “My passion is people and investing in their well-being.” Director of T&TD, Chris Damboise said he “Couldn’t be happier to be her teammate,” a sentiment shared universally by all at High 5!
Hanne earned a BS in Chemistry from St. Lawrence University and has worked in educational settings, including Killington Mountain School, as a tutor and in student support roles. She spent time as a professional baker too, where her chemistry degree came in very handy. By design, she has always lived in settings where the mountains aren’t too far away so she can plan her next adventure hiking, climbing, mountain biking, or skiing.
