Shcherba was born in Baranovichi, Belarus. She has a younger sister Mariya Shcherba who is also an Olympic swimmer. In October 2001 Hanna moved to France where she first competed for the club Melun, but then changed to CS Clichy. In 2005, she married Arnaud Lorgeril, a French competitive swimmer whom she knew from 2002, and changed her name and nationality; thus at the 2008 Olympics she competed for France as Shcherba-Lorgeril. She speaks Russian and French and works as a swimming coach at CS Clichy.
