Originally from Philadelphia, Dr. Hanna moved to the Midwest to obtain her medical degree from Des Moines University. She then completed her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Illinois in Chicago. She met her west coast husband in medical school and they both decided to call Chicagoland their home. She is married with 3 children and a 90lb German Shepherd.
Dr Hanna realized early in her medical career her true passion was practicing Gynecology and Women's Healthcare, not delivering babies. She spent most of her career in private practice as a minimally invasive gynecologic surgeon. In 2019, she began to focus on midlife health, perimenopause and menopause. Hearing from patients they craved a women's care office devoted to the next phase of life, she founded MyMenopauseRx.
