Hannah Shoen Donoho graduated from Millikin University in 2010 with a bachelor of science in nursing. In 2017, she earned her master’s degree in nursing, also from Millikin, with a focus in nursing education. The basis of her master’s project was studying simulation in nursing education. 

For the past nine years, she has worked in the Women and Infants Center at St. Mary’s Hospital in Decatur as an RN in labor and delivery and in mother-baby care. Hannah has served as a charge nurse, as well as a preceptor and mentor. In 2018, she took on a new role as the women and infants center educator. Her responsibilities include Illinois Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (ILPQC) initiatives, lactation outreach and Illinois Department of Public Health initiatives, as well as onboarding all new colleagues and providing ongoing education to all staff members and providers. 

Hannah is passionate about her assistance with the Share Committee at St. Mary’s, where she assists in providing community outreach services to patients who have experienced pregnancy or stillbirth. She also co-leads a support group for the program. Hannah also finds it incredibly challenging, yet rewarding, when working with the ILPQC and rolling out new quality care initiatives to improve the perinatal care provided at St. Mary’s. She will speak on the September 30 call for the ILPQC regarding their work and successful sustainability of the Hypertensive Project over the last two years.

Hannah lives in Moweaqua, Ill., with her husband, Austin, and two small children: daughter Scarlett, 3, and son Sullivan, 1. Although Hannah has a strong passion for education, especially for new nurses just beginning their journey into the profession, her true joy is found in spending time at home with her family. She finds absolute happiness in watching her two small children experience the simple joys of childhood.
