Kids VT: Hannah, you've been hard at work on the new Talent indoor skateboarding facility. You must be busy!

Hannah: Yes, I'm working a full-time job and doing this right now! It's a labor of love, and the time I spend working on Talent doesn't feel like work because it's a passion. And it needs to happen!

KVT: Parenting two kids on top of that must be tricky.

Hannah: It's tricky, especially when you have really active kids! Senyah is in the weight-lifting club at school, and Adah is on the volleyball team at Mount Mansfield Union High School, and I never miss a game.

KVT: Girls, are you into skating?

Adah: Not that much! I wish I'd gotten more into it when we had the old place. But maybe the new place will be like a new beginning, and we'll get more into it together. I know I definitely want to get a job here, and I'm excited to get to work here with my family.

KVT: It's a pretty cool family business.

Hannah: [Adah and Senyah] are a big part of it. Both of them were at the old Talent with me when they were two days old. I was back to work that fast. So it really is a family thing.

KVT: Do your friends ask you about the new space? Are they excited?

Adah: Yeah, a lot of my friends are.

Senyah: Even Mr. Martin, a teacher at my school, is always like, Senyah, when is it opening?
