Our last intern to spotlight is Hannah Claycomb. She joins us from Seattle Pacific University and her favorite musicians are Kendrick Lamar and Billie Holiday. She originally developed an interest in music therapy after doing some research on her own. She originally wanted to be a nurse but discovered that she was scared of blood. Hannah always loved music, as well as enjoyed singing and playing instruments but did not want to solely be a musician. In her research, she was looking for a way to combine her musicianship and healthcare, and that's how Hannah found music therapy. After discovering this profession, her heart was set on becoming a music therapist.
Hannah's favorite internship experience so far has been getting to know the students, teachers, therapist, and other staff more as the weeks go on. She says, "Everyone has been so welcoming and kind to me and I am learning so much from my students, supervisors, and everyone else I have met along the way." Outside of music, Hannah enjoys starting the day with a nice cup of coffee. We are so excited to have her with us. Welcome Hannah!
