I am a cannabis activist and inspirational speaker. Originally from Boston, I have now made NWA my home.
I am magna cum laude graduate of Boston University in 1987, with a BS in Occupational Therapy. I have worked as an occupational therapist for 25 years both as a treating therapist and as an area director. My career in this field ended in 2011 when I became gravely ill and then disabled.
I am most known for being the founder of Bulldozer Health Inc., a 501c3 non-profit organization and health care reform initiative. You can learn more about it at www.bulldozerhealth.org. It’s mission is to educate everyone about all of their health options, improve access to alternative health care, and inspire people to optimal health.
In 2017, I authored the book, “Sixteen: My Journey into Wellness”, outlining my health journey and giving the reader a recipe for their own health journey. I then authored and illustrated two more books for children. The first is “Helpful Hannah Creates Her Own Health and Happiness” and the second is “Helpful Hannah Educates Herself About Cannabis”. These books are meant to educate and inspire individuals to health empowerment and improved health and wellness. The cannabis education book was written to teach children the truth about the cannabis family of plants, and reduce the stigma attached to it.
As an artist, I spent my formative years immersed in art, music and dance. I dabbled in acrylics, watercolour and pastels, coming from a family of creatives. I was able to utilize my talents and knowledge when I worked as an occupational therapist, utilizing the art and science of therapy to treat patients. I began to work with painting again in recent years, for not only it’s therapeutic value, but to send the messages of health, wellness, ending cannabis prohibition, promoting cannabis as medicine, and encouraging personal spirituality. It has truly been a journey of art and healing that has created my most recent works.
I was recently selected to be an artist member of The Cannabis Art Guild, presently one of 8 artists worldwide. My work will be with hemp materials for the guild, where “the medium is the message”. This exhibit is touring worldwide at cannabis events and exhibits. Please check out the guild at www.cannabisartguild.org
