DSP Spotlight: Hannah Pannell

I have been at Advance for over a year and a half, and it has been amazing! I started out as residential services at Hillcrest and while I was incredibly nervous at first, I soon fell in love with the job and people there became my second family. As everyone knows, there nothing quite like a hug from Brandi N or spending a day with Amy H! My year there was awesome, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. When HC closed down, I thought I would never have those same connections, but 905 proved me to be very wrong. The new individuals I work with are just as amazing, and they too hold a special place in my heart. Advance is so different from any job I’ve ever had and I’m so thankful for the day that Paige came to my class and told us about how great it would be to work here, because she was right! I am a student as SDSU and am pursuing a degree in Psychology and Pre-OT and for a while I thought I wanted to work with kids, but this job has definitely changed that for me. I hope to someday work with people as wonderful as everyone I’m met throughout my years here. No matter where you are in Advance, there always amazing staff and people ready to brighten up your day!
