Bio

"Hannah has been self employed for the last 15 years owning her own businesses, so understands the struggles that small business owners face. She has a passion for connecting the right people together, and helping with small business growth.

Currently Hannah owns, and manages, Rapid Exposure Social Media Management & Coaching, and also Laser Plumbing in Kerikeri.

Hannah has a passion for making small improvements in the mental health space, specifically around awareness and suicide prevention, and has made it a focus this year to bring access into the local community by starting wellness events / seminars.

Hannah is an extroverted person, trapped in solo and sometimes lonely jobs. TNG helped enormously by connecting her with like-minded individuals and says "I've found my tribe thanks to TNG. When the opportunity came along to move into the AGM position, it naturally fit with my work ethic of growth and striving to succeed and so, I take on the challenge of growing the Northland networking scene further.

When Hannah isn't working, you'll find her running around after her 3 teenage girls."
