Her career has taken her across many industries starting with serving in the United States Senate for Senator Mark Pryor. 

She was then recruited to join Facebook as a founding member of the Washington DC political office. Sheryl Sandberg connected with Hannah Kay during the period of time of the writing and publication of the book “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead”, which provided international exposure to the non-profit, Lean In – created to empower all women to achieve their ambitions. Hannah Kay became Head of Operations for that entire organization.

She then connected with Arianna Huffington and took time to help her launch Thrive Global in New York City.

Hannah Kay was born with the purpose of living her life to connect with others. Her passion to help others build confidence in themselves is her greatest personal reward stemming from her coaching profession.

You are loved.
You are not alone.
