Dr. Hanshew was born in Yakima, WA. The eldest of five children, she was raised with a heightened sense of responsibility and awareness of health and safety issues. She grew up in the south end of Seattle and attended St. Anthony's Elementary school in Renton and JFK Memorial High School in Burien. She was a participant in the first Junior Admit Program to Seattle University in 1972, majoring in Biology. She graduated with Honors from Drake University in Des Moines, IA in 1976 with a B.A. in Biology.

In 1982, Dr. Hanshew graduated with Honors from Drake University with a Master of Arts Degree in Genetics and Microbiology. Jennifer Lyn was born in 1980 and was a constant companion in graduate school to Dr. Hanshew. Her students were very fond of the baby girl and would compete for the privilege of holding and playing with the baby during class.

During this time, Dr. Hanshew also worked full-time as a research Scientist for Syntex Laboratories in Vaccine research and development. She then applied to the University of Washington School of Medicine and was accepted. She graduated in 1987 with Honors, completing the arduous four-year program in only three years. She was the recipient of the prestigious Excellence in Physical and Medical Rehabilitation Award as a second year medical student and the Merck Manual Award in recognition of her outstanding academic and clerkship performance in graduating with Honors in only three years. Again, Jennifer was a favorite in class, as well as on the clinical rotations.

Dr. Hanshew attended the Swedish Hospital Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program from 1987-1989. She has practiced medicine on the eastside of Seattle since 1989. She is Board-Certified in Family Medicine and Bariatric Medicine (Weight Management). She has achieved specialized training in Anti-Aging Medicine, Natural Hormone Replacement and Environmental Toxicity issues relating to the exponential rise in the incidence and successful treatment of Autism, Fibromyalgia , ADD, Chronic Fatigue, Multiple Sclerosis, Obesity, Anxiety, Depression and Cancer. She is a national recognized speaker, published author, and has testified before the EPA demanding a ban on the "legal" practice of allowing toxic heavy metals to be "recycled" in our fertilizer and food supply.

Dr. Hanshew currently resides in Costa Rica, where she is an expert on environmental toxicity issues and health-related concerns. She is no longer licensed to practice medicine in the U.S.
