Hannah McNicol

PRACTICE MANAGER

Email Hannah

Hannah joined Edupi back in 2012. She is now our Practice Manager and you will hear her voice on the end of the phone when you call the office.

She is Australian born with Scottish and English ancestry, although she feels somewhat like an adopted Mediterranean after spending 8 years living, studying and working in Italy. She understands the experience of applying for a visa to live and work in another country. She went through it herself in Italy, applying for a ‘Permesso Di Soggiorno’ after she finished her Masters in Florence.

Hannah knows there can be frustration, tears, nerves, but ultimately, when the visa comes through it changes lives. For the better. Hannah is fluent in Italian.
