In 1993, Hannan was recognized as Woman Entrepreneur of the Year by the National Association of Women Business Owners. She has also been honored for her contributions to broadcasting and electronic media by American Women in Radio & Television.

Hannan is an accomplished producer, and a number of her projects have been recognized by the film and broadcast industry. Her docu-drama for NorCal Insurance, "A Time of Trial," earned a Silver Screen Award at the U.S. Industrial Film Festival and a Bronze Award at the International Film & TV Festival in New York.

A native of Massachusettts, Hannan was one of the first women to attend Dartmouth College, graduating magna cum laude.
