About Hannah

As a registered nurse and alumna of the Honors College and School of Nursing at Ball State University, I take pride in combining each of my passions through biomedical and clinical research. I am currently a co-investigator on an ongoing study in a neonatal intensive care unit exploring the effects of movement and music on newborns experiencing withdrawal symptoms, or neonatal abstinence syndrome, from in-utero drug exposure. I am spending my first year with my shiny new registered nurse license “down under” in Melbourne, Australia, exploring new diagnostic methods for a rare disease called Fanconi Anemia (FA). As a fellow in the Genome Stability Unit at St. Vincent’s Institute for Medical Research, and as a grantee of the Fulbright Future Scholarship for 2020, I am learning from some of the world’s leading researchers and contributing to the fight against FA, inherited bone marrow disorders, and even cancers.
