Hannah Maerowitz, Resume

Education:

University of California, Santa Barbara

Candidate for a double major in Film and Media Studies (BA) and Psychological and Brain Sciences (BS) with a minor in Chemistry. Member of the honors program with a 3.81 GPA. I am a writer for The Bottom Line, a writer for Sex Info Online, a Raab Writing Fellow, and a copyeditor for FOCUS Media Journal.

Work Experience:

LSAT and GRE Instructor for Kaplan, Inc.

After one year of focusing on ACT and SAT students as a pre-college instructor, I sought to expand my role to graduate level teaching. I am currently preparing to teach my first LSAT class, which requires score qualification (a 90th percentile score or above on the LSAT). My goal as an instructor is to create an environment where students feel empowered to ask questions and make mistakes as we partner to reach their score goals.

Science and Technology Editor for The Bottom Line

This role involves managing writers, editing articles, and producing three or more science and technology articles for print each week during the academic year. As a section editor, I transitioned the section from being focused primarily focused on science-based stories with prior coverage from other press outlets to focusing on a balance between science and technology articles and producing more exclusive stories.

Research Assistant for Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences

In this role, I ran and analyzed data for social psychology experiments in the Ratner Lab at UCSB. I ran an average of 5 experiments per week, analyzed data, and regularly communicated with the graduate student I worked with, whose work was focused on factors that affect moral decision making.

Media and Editorial Intern for The Ken Blanchard Companies

In this role, I balanced responsibilities as both a communications and editorial intern, including but not limited to photography, photo editing, copywriting, Wordpress maintenance, blog composition, videography, data analysis in Excel, and web design. I also brainstormed ideas for and assisted in the launch of the Ken Blanchard Books website.

Relevant Experience:

.comPosition Founder

Along with my partner, I founded a group that provided free web development and coding classes to middle school and high school students. My role involved simplifying coding concepts into activities or exercises that were accessible to students with different backgrounds. Part of my vision in this role was to relate coding concepts to diverse disciplines, including art and graphic design.
