Hannah Grill

Hannah enjoys nothing more than getting into the weeds with her clients, digging through past experiences to find the key components around which successful essays, resumes and letters of recommendation can be crafted. She takes a very collaborative, energetic and comprehensive approach, leveraging her 5+ years of branding, media relations and communications experience to the benefit of her clients.

Hannah has an MBA from the Yale School of Management, where she was also an admissions interviewer. She was an applicant from a nontraditional background, coming from a Public Relations agency where she worked with clients on crisis and issues communications and led corporate branding efforts. Since business school, Hannah has worked in Global Corporate Strategy at PepsiCo where she drives M&A, revenue realization and premium profitability efforts for the Global Snacks Group.

In her spare time, Hannah has helped entrepreneur friends with their branding and communications efforts – crafting impactful pitches and developing authentic storytelling that has thus far led to more than $5M angel investments. Since joining Square One Prep, Hannah has turned her passion for branding to her MBA admission clients.

Hannah lives in New York City, and when she is not deep in the admissions world with clients, she can be found writing nonfiction, reading just about anything, or volunteering with Charlie, her black lab who happens to be a certified therapy dog.
