Hannah Arnold

Residential Therapist

Hannah brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm from Texas, along with her passion and expertise as a Recreational Therapist.

Hannah attended Brigham Young University—Idaho, and earned a Bachelors Degree in Therapeutic Recreation. She then went on to intern at the Utah State Hospital, where she helped a diverse collection of people.

Hannah says, “Therapeutic Recreation uses evidence-based practices and activities to address the individual needs of your child. My hope is that I can provide them with knowledge, skills, and resources that they can utilize to enhance their overall well-being along with facing the challenges of life.” She likes the “great atmosphere and energy” at West Ridge, and says, “All of the staff want the best for our students.”

Hannah is happily married and together are raising two dogs—Coco (Miniature Golden-doodle) and Harley (Irish Water Spaniel). She says, “We love our dogs, “kids,” like crazy, and enjoy taking them on walks and hikes all around the area.” Hannah is an avid reader and enjoys mystery novels. She also enjoys listening to music and photography.
