Hannah Romano, MSN, NP-C
Hannah Romano truly enjoys working with patients and problem-solving solutions to good health. Through practice, she has found that it takes the support of the health care team and the community to stay healthy. She recognizes that she can provide a piece of the puzzle, but also looks for support from medical specialists, mental health professionals, health coaches, pharmacists and dieticians.
Hannah is thrilled to provide health care to the Northern Colorado community where she grew up. She left Fort Collins to attend Gonzaga University where she received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish. After graduating, she served as an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer in Juneau, Alaska, where she worked with youth and adults in the National Council of Alcohol and Drug Dependence. Hannah decided to continue her education after she had completed her volunteer work and moved to Asheville, North Carolina where she completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from East Tennessee State University. After practicing as a registered nurse in a cardiac unit, Hannah went on to complete a Masters of Science in Nursing from Western Carolina University. Hannah continued on a path of caring for patients in atypical communities and practiced as a Family Nurse Practitioner for three years at a rural Community Health Center, serving largely a migrant worker population.
Hannah has been practicing medicine for 3 years in Colorado and North Carolina.
Hannah is also fluent in Spanish. She learned Spanish in College, and while studying abroad in Alicante, Spain.
Hannah’s approach to treating patients focuses on integrating their whole health. She encourages her patients to be active participants in the preventative and healing process. Hannah views health care as a union of provider, patient and best practices to bring about health.
“My goal is to motivate and support patients as they engage in their self-care, whether it be medication adherence, daily exercise, smoking cessation, or making healthy food choices. The greatest reward for me as a provider is when patients report that they feel good in their mind, body and spirit.”
Hannah practices what she preaches and lives an active lifestyle. She enjoys rock climbing, hiking, cross-country skiing and snowboarding. She thrives on daily outdoor time, her “nature therapy”, and seeks to be outside as much as possible. She understands the connection between mental and physical health and works hard to achieve balance. Hannah is also a certified yoga instructor. Her daily yoga and meditation practice help her relieve stress and find balance.
Hannah enjoys preventative medicine and chronic disease management. She is especially passionate about diabetes care. She finds joy (and challenge) in practicing family medicine and caring for a wide spectrum of ages, from newborns to seniors.
Hannah has experience working in school-based health centers, and from this work found a passion for caring for pre-teens and adolescents. She is passionate about contraceptive education and management and enjoys empowering teens to take ownership of their bodies.
She is also interested in the growing body of research in complementary medicine. Hannah is most notably interested in research related to meditation, breathwork, and herbalism in conjunction with western medicine.
Hannah loves traveling, crafting, gardening and outdoor family time. Mountain Biking is one of Hannah’s favorite activities. She biked through her 8th month of pregnancy, and now enjoys sharing this hobby with her family. Hannah prefers the climb in biking and enjoys the challenge of navigating slowly uphill, with the reward as the downhill.
