In 2008, Dr. Hanley contracted Necrotizing Fasciitis in her right hand and arm. She lost most of the functional use of her right hand and underwent more than ten surgeries to save her hand and arm.  Her new disability made it difficult and unsafe for her to practice as an Anesthesiologist.

She completed her training in 2012 and has been practicing Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine since then. She became the Fellowship Program Director at Kent County from 2013 until 2018.  In 2018, Dr. Hanley accepted the position of Medical Director of the Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Program at Roper St Francis Healthcare in Charleston, South Carolina.
