We have a familiar voice for you this week as Erik interviews The Tech Academy’s very own Hannah Patterson! Hannah is the VP for Outreach, a Concordia University Instructor through our partnership with the college, and a Tech Academy Podcast guest host!
Coming from a theater background, Hannah never imagined she’d be working in the technology field – let alone be teaching in it! In this episode we hear about what her idea of a technology worker was and how that’s changed since working at The Tech Academy, her background in theater, what it’s like being ‘Professor Patterson’, and so much more!
Speaker: Hannah Patterson
