Hannah has become a favourite presenter at many schools and educational facilities across the country given her ability to engage students of all ages and leave students with a can-do attitude.

During educational presentations, Hannah discusses what it is like to be an elite athlete with an impairment, and the roller coaster ride that goes hand-in-hand with this lifestyle. By highlighting how she has had numerous surgeries and injuries, missed a world championship team by .08 of a second, failed to believe in herself at critical moments, Hannah is able to impart life lessons to a variety of age groups.


Programs and Presentations include, but are not limited to:

  • Dreams, Goal Setting, and Action Plans
  • Mental Health & Well-Being
  • Building Resiliency, Optimism, and Growth Mindsets
  • Creating Motivation and Commitment for Success
  • Effective Communication Skills
  • Improving Leadership Capacity

“Thank you so much for coming to Echuca College and spending time talking with the students. The presentations were very apt and no doubt we will have some interesting discussions with the students about what was said. I have already reminded my HHD students about the  ‘purple elephant’ example when some started talking about failing their SAC they were about to sit. I actually said ‘pink elephant’ but they remembered and reminded me it was actually ‘purple’!”
Katrina Shirley, Head of PE & Health, Echuca College
“Hannah was fantastic and the kids loved her – an amazing young lady with a strong message. The students are currently working on letters of thank-you for Hannah, which we will forward as soon as they are finished.”
Kellie Friso, LEEP, Chelsea
“Thank you so much for helping us out with coming into PCW and speaking. So many students and teachers were talking about your speech the next day and saying how much they enjoyed listening to your story! …So many girls took a lot from the stories and I definitely look at situations differently now.”
Madeline Emery, PCW Melbourne
