Hancie is SMYAL’s Director of Communications where she works with the organization’s staff and community partners to coordinate effective social media, email, and media communication strategies.

Raised in Massachusetts, Hancie is a graduate of American University where she majored in Anthropology and Women, Gender, and Sexuality studies. She comes to SMYAL after two years of working in non-profits and direct service roles that promote comprehensive sex education and self-empowerment. Hancie believes that communications allow us to bring these dialogues out into the world to reach people who may not have direct access to them in their daily lives, and build stronger relationships across communities.

When not at SMYAL, Hancie can be found making friends with vendors at Eastern Market, playing board games, or trying to convince her partner to adopt a rescue dog.
