Hello Maryland Responders! My name is Hannah Thomas and I am the new Maryland Responds Program Assistant. I will be assisting with Maryland Responds volunteer engagement and recruitment activities. I am really looking forward to meeting and working with you all!
To give you a little background on myself, I am new to the state of Maryland. I recently received my B.A. from Virginia Tech where I studied National Security and Leadership. There, I also worked with the Virginia Tech Office of Emergency Management where I found my passion for serving others and teaching people how to prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies. I learned firsthand how this information can make a difference in any type of emergency situation. That is why I wanted to take on a role within the Maryland Responds program. Your decision to volunteer your time and expertise is truly inspiring, and I am honored to be a part of such a dedicated group of Responders.
