Healthy Eating with Hannah

Fuel Yourself for Wellness!

Thank you to the Estes Valley Library for having me as a speaker for their "We're In This Together" Series! This video focuses on healthy eating, hydration and sleep. Tips for students, parents, and anyone on physical wellness that impacts our mental wellness.

Hannah Knox, M.Ed, LPC, NCC

I am a professional that believes in the empowerment of youth to create meaningful change in this world. The majority of my time is serving Estes students (and families) through direct service, case collaboration, and case management. I support staff through education, consultation, and resource referrals. I also work with community providers for wrap-around support for individual cases, community events, group offerings, and mental health crisis preparation.
