Hanna Baker





I moved to DC six years ago. After living in the Adams Morgan and Capitol Hill neighborhoods I settled in Hillsdale. Over the last three years, Hillsdale has truly become my home.  I’m honored to have been so warmly welcomed to this community by residents who have been here for 50 years or 5 months. You can find me at Anacostia River Church on Sundays where I serve in children’s ministry and supports small groups or on the corner of Howard and Hillsdale when I'm not volunteering at the Anacostia Playhouse, or working out at the Fort Stanton Rec Center.

I got my professional start selling dolls in the Bahamian Straw Market at the age of 6, ever since then I've been working in service to and for my community. Watching my single mother who worked full time as a Civil Servant for the Bahamian Ministry of Tourism, battle breast cancer throughout my teen years inspired me to be hard working, self-motivated, and dedicated. 

I attended Morgan State University and then the University of Central Florida where I focused my undergraduate and graduate studies on Hospitality and Tourism.  I've held positions with premier service organizations including Delaware North Parks and Hilton Hotels and Resorts, managed Florida’s Official Juice Festival and partnered with organizations like The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and Convoy of Hope to produce large scale conferences and community events.  Currently I serve in the Executive Office of Mayor Muriel Bowser where I have the honor of being a Special Assistant for the Mayor's Office of Community Affairs. 

​I'm a proud resident of  Hillsdale, a lover of lyrical hip- hop and the favorite aunt to 9 nephews and 6 nieces.  


My Commitment toMy Neighbors



To truly stand with someone you must know what they are standing for. I am committed to being quick to listen to my neighbors so that I can stand with you. 


We live in a changing neighborhood, like it or not. I am committed to learning our neighborhoods history so that I can preserve and enhance the good and work to correct the wrong and unjust.



There are many resources available in our city to address the real challenges we face. I am committed to locating all available resources that can be used for the benefit of our neighborhood. 


Learning, listening and  locating are put in to action by leadership.  I am committed to leading in a way that reflects the interest of my neighbors today and protects the interest of our neighbors for the future.
