I workout pretty much every morning at Orange Theory Fitness which is amazing. It has changed my life in so many great ways. If I don’t work out Saturday mornings, then you can find me hiking with some of my girlfriends. I enjoy staying active. I love to be out on the water either boating or paddle boarding which is new to me but love it so much! I’ve started to get into reading a lot more than I ever have. It’s helped me learn a lot about myself. I like spending time with friends and family as well sitting on a patio at a brewery!
Originally from a small Indiana farming community, Hannah moved to Colorado in 1998 and still loves living here. She returned to the Midwest for college, attending Indiana University’s fine art program with a focus on photography, French, and music, but afterwards quickly settled back in mountain country.
Hannah worked eleven years as a receptionist at Harmony Hand & Physical Therapy Center, gaining extensive knowledge of the insurance industry, billing, and tenacious problem-solving. Now the insurance specialist for Colorado In Motion’s multiple locations in Northern Colorado, Hannah enjoys the daily challenge of working problematic accounts, continually learning, and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of patients, her colleagues, as well as the business. She finds advocating for proper insurance payment very rewarding. However, she considers Colorado In Motion’s team the best part of her career, daily looking forward to interaction with patients and co-workers.
Hannah continues to passionately pursue visual and performing arts through travel photography, botanical acrylic painting, dancing with Rocky Mountain Latin Dance Academy, and occasionally writing music or blogging. When not absorbed in art projects, Hannah soaks up the Colorado sun by hiking, paddle boarding, kayaking, wakeboarding, and simply enjoying anything involving water.

I was referred to CIM for some calf and Achilles issues a few months after a bad strain. I had the pleasure of working with Derek Haverley to resolve it. Derek took time explaining to me how dry needling could help the situation, the results were amazing. It took about 4-5 sessions of dry needling…

I was referred to Colorado Physical Therapy Specialists and saw John. He was very helpful in easing the pain in my shoulder and gave me exercises to do at home in short increments of time that would fit into my schedule, but would still accomplish the goal. He will listen to any concerns, is very…
