Hannah Crosby joined the Compassionate Care Initiative (CCI) team as the program manager in 2013, after managing multiple grants and providing administrative support for the Global Initiatives Office at the UVA School of Nursing since 2009.
In 2012, Hannah received the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Innovation for her work on the Healthy Work Environment (HWE) Taskforce. Through this effort and dialogue with her colleagues, Hannah became even more aware of the importance of balance and self-care in day-to-day life. Her work with CCI and HWE has intersected nicely and cultivated her passion for promoting holistic well-being as an important avenue to nurturing resilience and compassion.
