Hansen is a Mormon and currently attends Brigham Young University. She took a year off to attend the Olympics. She graduated from La Cañada High School. She resides in La Cañada Flintridge, California.

Hansen is a fan of Beyoncé and listens to her exclusively while warming up for her races. She warms up by dancing, which became her trademark during the Sochi 2014 Olympics. The official Facebook page of Beyonce posted the link to her dance warmup before Hansen's final race in the Sochi 2014 luge event, wishing her luck. The dance apparently came about after she broke her foot and had trouble running to warm up.

Hansen teamed up with Jimmy Kimmel in a prank video which made it seem that a wolf had broken into the apartment where she was staying. A few days later, they admitted to the prank after having scared the media, as well as security.
