Hanna Dillard

Catering and Events Manager, Melrose Market Studios

Hanna loves the rush—the fast pace and adrenaline-fueled momentum of creating extraordinary events again and again. Which is an especially fine asset in someone overseeing the events at Melrose Market Studios, in bustling, ultra-urban Capitol Hill. At the same time, Hanna never forgets that her job is to create an impenetrable bubble of calm around her clients, and to stick unswervingly to their vision. “I love collaborating and giving input, but I also remind clients that it’s their opinion that matters most and their vision I’m trying to execute,” Hanna says. 

When she’s not caught up in the creative buzz of her work, Hanna loves hiking, cooking and trying new bars and restaurants. Ask her about her collection of coasters from pubs and eateries around the world, and the memory each one represents.
