Hannah qualified at the University of Brighton in 2004 with a first class honours degree in Podiatry. Following this she gained a placement at the New York school of Podiatric Medicine in July 2004 to widen her experience of complex podiatry related problems.

She worked and gained experience in the NHS (Kent PCT) before employment by the Ministry of Defence in 2007 to provide and set up Musculoskeletal Podiatry clinics at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre, Headley Court – a Tri–Service Centre offering a broad range of rehabilitation for both chronic overuse musculoskeletal injuries as well as complex injuries sustained during conflict. She was the clinical lead senior podiatrist and specialised in gait and lower limb biomechanical assessments for military personnel for overuse injuries and the most catastrophic of injuries.

In 2011 she began working in private health care clinics across Surrey and Buckinghamshire and in March 2014 Hannah became the director of Frontline Podiatry.

She has also provided a screening service for both Kent and Middlesex County Cricket Club Academies as well as UK athletics and treats both national and international athletes. She lectures extensively in gait analysis, podiatric trauma and sports medicine to podiatrists and other health care professionals.

Hannah is a keen sportswoman and plays for Buckingham ladies RFC and represents county level.
