Meet the Staff: Hannah Rhinehart
Hey, GCMT followers! We want you to meet our newest Music Therapist, Hannah Rhinehart!
This is her husband Will.
And their dog, Nugget!
Hannah joined our team after interning with us last spring! If I could describe Hannah in 3 words, they would be driven, genuine, and helpful. She has taken initiative so many times in the workplace, doing things that needed to be done but no one asked her to do. She’s fluent in sign language and has worked with kids with special needs for years before joining our team. She also heads up the Special Needs Program at Alpharetta United Methodist Church when she’s not at The George Center.
So, let’s hear from the woman herself!
What is your role at GCMT?
I am a music therapist!
What has been your favorite experience so far at GCMT?
It’s too hard to choose one! My favorite experiences include watching my clients meet and exceed their goals, working collaboratively with my co-workers to make sure I am always providing quality care and musical experiences, and creating shows like Any Dream Will Do that showcase the many abilities of the folks we work with!
Where did you go to school?
University of Georgia – GO DAWGS!
Where were you before GCMT?
After school, I was a director for a camp for children and adults with special needs. It was a fulfilling experience and I am grateful to have been a part of their lives! Afterwards, I came to GCMT to complete my internship where I fell in love with the atmosphere of the company and the populations they served. I am blessed to have made a home here!
What do you like to do for fun?
My husband and I love to take our dog, Nugget, on hiking and camping trips all over the southeast.
What is your favorite food?
What do you think is your best quality?
I try to be 100% genuine with everyone I meet. With my friends, family, co-workers, and clients. I want not only provide a service, but to make sure everyone feels heard, loved, and befriended.
What is your favorite thing about GCMT?
My favorite thing about GCMT is unparalleled support of my colleagues and the families we serve. Whether it was my internship, or my now professional life, I have always been encouraged and pushed to be the best I can be because our clients deserve nothing less. It’s amazing that the same people who polished my therapeutic qualities now sit with me to discuss interventions and philosophies of music therapy listening and respecting every word I have to say.
