I love living in the Pacific Northwest and enjoy several outdoor sports including wakeboarding and water skiing, riding ATV’s and horseback riding.

Hannah Robinson—Content Strategist
Fresh out of college with a professional writing degree in one hand and a PR minor in the other, Hannah jumped straight into Content Marketing. Something you should know: Hannah is an extrovert. So the switch from a busy college student to a quiet life of working from home came as quite the shock. That is, until she became the Writing Team Supervisor. Now, to offset the solitary work of writing and strategy, she meets with members of her team almost daily. Hannah thoroughly enjoys working with this worldwide team. And she has taken it upon herself to help maintain an exciting and collaborative virtual workplace environment.

Even when she's not working, she has a hard time turning off her "marketing brain." So, that means critiquing commercials when she's watching TV with her husband. Or even applauding good billboards—which are hard to come by—on the interstate while driving to visit family. And when Hannah is completely disconnected from work, you'll find her either quietly reading a book surrounded by all her houseplants or out making memories with friends... which usually isn't quiet, being she's an extrovert and all.

Nearly 8+ years of writing, editing, educating, and critical thinking experience have made her totally game for a challenge both inside and outside of work. When she’s not writing content for i7, she loves basking in the SoCal sunshine with her dog and husband, drinking a glass of iced coffee, and reading a good book.
