For Hannah Arrington, Nike's Just Do It slogan sums up a lot of her journey thus far and reminds her to take risks and opportunities outside of her comfort zone. As a Mechanical Engineering graduate of UNC Charlotte, Hannah has continued to work for AREVA Inc. for 9 years. Early in her career, she was selected to be a part of the inaugural class of a rotational program that sends selected employees to work for a year in three different business units of the company, with increasing responsibility. During this time, Hannah gained valuable nuclear site experience while assisting with steam generator replacements, working on the design of nuclear fuel assemblies, and a 3rd generation nuclear plant design.
After completing her rotational program Hannah was deployed to the AREVA GmbH office in Erlangen, Germany. For three years she obtained experience in international business and expanded her knowledge of the global reach of the company. In 2014, Hannah returned to Charlotte in the role as Project Manager for AREVA Inc. where she has leveraged her diverse experience for project execution in the local region. In 2014, Hannah also became graduate of E4 Carolinas Emerging Leaders program.
Hannah believes in surrounding herself with individuals more talented and experienced than her in order to propel her thoughts, actions, and dreams to levels otherwise not possible. She continues to work to focus on the people in her life, test her courage, expand her influence, and push herself beyond "the box".
Hannah lives in Mooresville with her hilarious and hardworking husband, Billy, and their two children, Atticus and Magnolia.
