Hannah Muller has been named volunteer engagement manager of Habitat for Humanity. Ms. Muller relocated from Nashville where she served in a similar capacity.
Officials said, "Her appointment comes at a time requiring an additional emphasis for the safety of volunteers as they support non-profit organizations."
Habitat President and CEO David Butler noted that Ms. Muller brings a strong skill set to her new position. “Hannah was one of the leaders on the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project last year in Nashville. She coordinated the volunteer efforts around the project and was a key member of the team in making sure the efforts were highly successful.
We appreciate Hannah’s passion for Habitat and are excited to welcome her to the Chattanooga team,” Mr. Butler said.
Ms. Muller is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University and served in various positions in the hospitality industry before making a career move to the non-profit world. She said, “I made the move into non-profit work because of the passion I have to make a difference in the lives of others. I am not only looking forward to being a member of the Habitat team, but also looking forward to being a citizen of such a vibrant city.”
In her new position, Ms. Muller will recruit volunteers and provide various levels of engagement to benefit the organization. Her focus will not only be on the work done by the volunteers, but also on making sure they have the best experience in a safe environment. “There’s a passion for Habitat from those who volunteer”, said Ms. Muller, “whether it’s Chattanooga, Nashville or any other city where Habitat works, the common thread is the passion they have to serve others. I’m honored to be a part of Chattanooga’s Habitat team.”
