Hattie McConnell is our Laner of the Week!

M / L
Hattie is fairly new to the Lane and has been a great addition to our Orlando team. Hattie started practicing her 6-second elevator pitch in college when getting herself involved in anything and everything. Hattie served as an ambassador for the University of Arizona, a programming member for the student athletic section, ZonaZoo, a member of the Arizona Allegiance Honorary, and #22 in the beloved Chain Gang Honorary. This all happened while earning two degrees and a minor (Bear Down!). To say she works best when on a tight schedule is an understatement. To fill in the gaps in her schedule Hattie loves to be with her golden retriever, Poppins, spend time with her family, attend fairs and festivals, hot air balloon, and dance! Hattie has spent the last two years traveling the world dancing and singing on cruise lines. To check out more about Hattie head to her Instagram: @hattie_mcconnell
