Hannah Kolkmeier

Hannah's background is in political polling, issue advocacy, and K-12 education. In her most recent role at Benenson Strategy Group, she worked on behalf of a range of clients to dig deeply into voters' attitudes, target key audiences, and develop resonant messaging strategies. She has executed qualitative and quantitative research related to policy/issue advocacy, corporate strategy, institutional and non-profit work, and for candidates up and down the ballot. She is particularly proud of her work on education and gender equity issues, and on behalf of women running for office.
Hannah is an alum of Hillary for America's digital advertising team and has worked at the NYC Dept of Education as a high school algebra teacher and Teacher Effectiveness project manager. Originally from Springfield, IL, she is a graduate of Northwestern University and is now based in Brooklyn, NY. Some of her favorite things are crossword puzzles, homemade pasta, and food that probably didn't need to be deep fried but is anyway.
