HANNAH MCKEEL - FOUNDER + CEO
Hannah McKeel is the Chief Executive Office and Creative Director behind the MCKEELY enterprise + Meant Studio. She's a former 2nd grade teacher and photographer turned serial entreprenuer, cat owner, and coffee drinker.
Hannah isn't afraid of hard work, determination, and getting it done. As a teenager, she worked three jobs, 7 days a week, in addition to owning a photography business started at 15 years old- bringing in enough revenue with a kit camera to completely support herself and her travels through both high school and college.
In college, she majored in Elementary Education, consulted with start-ups on how to creatively and strategically start and grow a successful business, transitioned her photography business to a branding, coaching, commercial photography, and small business marketing agency (ehem, McKeely Creative) and graduated one year early at the age of 20 years old.
She taught second grade for an entire school year- all while building and growing her business after school, on the weekends, and late into the night. And she was miserable. Stuck in a "9-5", over worked, underpaid, and not able to devote her full attention and passion to her life's "meant"- the thing she feels like she was put on this earth to do- which is help creative entrepreneurs launch and grow their dream brands so they can live a life they're passionate about. In October of her second year teaching, she turned the tables on her life, quit her teaching job, and never looked back.
