Hannah studied Drama at the University of Hull.

Immediately after graduating, Hannah worked as Assistant Director to Matthew Warchus. She then won a Bursary from the prestigious Channel 4 Directors’ scheme and spent 18 months at Derby Playhouse.  After the bursary she was invited to stay as Director in Residence for a further two years, directing a varied programme of work. During her time in Derby, Hannah was also responsible for developing new writing, working on over 15 world Premieres.

After leaving Derby, Hannah spent three months in Manchester as Associate Director for the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games. 

The following year, Hannah became the youngest women ever to become an Artistic Director in the UK, when Harrogate Theatre appointed her at the age of 25.

After leaving Harrogate, Hannah has directed a large number of Plays and Musicals in the UK and internationally.
