Hana started taking violin lessons when she was in 8th grade with the intent of joining her high school orchestra the following year. After 2 years, she switched over to the viola and immediately fell in love with its deeper sound. She joined the VCO in the Spring of 2015 to rejuvenate her passion of making music as part of an orchestra.
She also has experience with the piano, having started lessons when she was 5. When she is not playing music, she enjoys playing soccer in a competitive league, reading, and spending time with her husband and their two dogs. In addition to her many home renovation projects, she likes to crochet, knit, paint, and cook. She graduated from Virginia Tech in 2012 with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, and currently works for Altec Industries.
