A Marketing Assistant with deep artistic roots, Hannah Burkholder is a natural-born visionary with a sweet spot for details and design. To date, Hannah brings a strong understanding of executing authentic campaigns, customer service, and closing communication gaps through her various channels of art. Applying that to TriVistaUSA, Hannah is valued not only for her diverse insights on design, but also for her ability to turn every initiative into a creative path forward.
Hailing from Arlington, VA, Hannah started exhibiting her artistic talent at a young age. With six siblings, her childhood was replete with a lot of energy and creativity, making her spend a significant amount of it drawing and painting. Following her love for art, she pursued a degree in Studio Arts at James Madison University. There, she explored various creative avenues, including commissioned-based watercolors, children's book illustrations, stained glass windows, and her personal favorite, large-scale oil paintings. Upon graduation, Hannah worked at various jobs such as teaching, administration and serving as a social media manager for her coffee shop. Simultaneously, her interest in design surfaced, motivating her to pursue courses at RISD with the goal of becoming certified in residential interior design.
Today, Hannah’s diverse experiences have given her a unique perspective on communicating effectively with clients and she is admired for her collaborative style built on mutual respect and inclusivity. This is alongside holding the backend responsibilities of ensuring all marketing coordinations run smoothly, optimizing client experiences, and overseeing various internal initiatives that all play a role in the larger picture.
Both personally and professionally, Hannah is passionate about the idea that there is something to be taken away from every experience. Sometimes they're lessons, sometimes wins, and other times just a laugh. That said, when Hannah is not wearing her many hats, you can usually find her running, playing sports, stopping time with her camera, trying out different local restaurants and coffee shops, and keeping friends/family on their toes with her spontaneous shenanigans. The wildest of which was a starlit hike on an active volcano in Guatemala.
