Hannah is currently putting roots down in the beautiful hills of Virginia, but is a frequent traveler to many states.

Community and serving the Lord are at the heart of everything she does.

Hannah is passionate about connecting with people and walking alongside them in whatever season of life the Lord has brought them to. She is currently finishing a Masters degree in Pastoral Counseling and is becoming better equipped to listen and guide students through the rollercoaster of life and help train them for pursuing the abilities they have and want to learn.

TIM FISHER is the Controller and Director of Teams & Talent at Unbound with a professional interest in the intersection of company vision, team culture, and financial operations.

While working on a Bachelor of Accounting degree through Unbound and Thomas Edison State University, Tim used the flexibility of online education to not only study but also work, travel, and build community.

Tim finds extraordinary ways to do ordinary things and lives his life with an open hand. He believes each day contains adventures that are best lived out with joy fueled by deep gratitude and hope. His life mission is to receive God’s Love, be transformed by God’s Love, and pour God’s Love into the people around him. When he isn’t connecting his company’s vision to its numbers, he’s outside running, cycling, or traveling, always in pursuit of another adventure, never sure of who he’ll meet next.

With a firm belief in the power of positive thinking, Tim is bent on blowing up the stereotype of the boring accountant. He loves helping others find their why and overcome challenges so they, in turn, can flourish. Tim lives in northern Indiana, enjoys quiet time with French-pressed coffee (black, of course), and is building a brand-new community. To connect with Tim, check out his profile on LinkedIn.

OLIVIA JACKS is a homeschool graduate, the oldest of eight, a logistics-lover, and the one occasionally dubbed a group’s “voice of reason” – all facts which shape her current role as the Operations Coordinator for Unbound. With experience co-planning over ten student conferences, she attempts to approach situations with efficiency and clarity, whether booking flights, communicating event details, or troubleshooting last-minute mishaps. She translates these same characteristics into her speaking style with the goal of presenting information in an easy-to-understand fashion while providing clear action steps for her listeners. In her free time, Olivia is most often found reading classic literature or spending time with friends and family in the mountains of Virginia.
