Hannah Bense:

College Planner


Hannah is a Folsom native thrilled to be back in the Sacramento area to serve the families in the community. She is completing the Master’s in Counseling, School Counseling specialization program at Sacramento State. The program’s focus on working with an educational team to optimize students’ academic, socio-emotional, and career development allows Hannah to bring valuable knowledge to The College Planning Center. Hannah attended California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo and earned a B.S. in Psychology, with a Concentration in Family and Counseling Psychology. In fact, she is a former College Planning Center student who attended her top choice school with Lynette’s guidance! 

After receiving her Bachelor’s degree, Hannah worked as a Human Resources Coordinator in San Luis Obispo. In this role, she trained team members and managers on Goal Setting, Performance Management, Interview Do’s and Don’ts, and much more. This has given her in-depth experience helping students set goals, refine resumes, and build professional skills. Hannah also worked with Family Care Network Inc. to enhance the safety and well-being of foster and high-needs youth. She provided guidance to young adults in everything from academic planning to building positive social and emotional skills. This rewarding position solidified her decision to pursue a career helping students reach their academic and career potential. She is excited to be part of The College Planning Center team and give today’s students the same immensely-valuable support she received as a CPC student.
