She studied nursing, worked at a hospital, studied in the evening business administration and was a catering and party service business operative.[2] Thereafter, she focused on leading jobs and has held various leading positions since then.

De Haan was heading senior citizen organisation ANBO from 2005 to 2020. Besides, she was a member of the socio-economic council SER from 2009 to 2013 and from 2018 to 2019, a member of the board of civil servants personnel organisation ACOP from 2012 to 2018, and also director of LGBT organisation COC Nederland.[2]

Born in Woerden, she was councillor of this municipality in the province of Utrecht from 2006 to 2010, until 2007 for Democrats 66 (D66), and afterwards for the Labour Party (PvdA) in Progressief Woerden.[3][4]

She was a member of 50+ from August 2020 to May 2021 and leaded the party into the 2021 Dutch general election in March 2021. 50+ gained one seat, so she has been both parliamentary group leader and an MP since March 2021. Because of serious disagreements with the party executive committee, she left 50+ on 6 May 2021 and continues as an independent MP.[5]

De Haan is divorced with three children and still lives in Woerden.[2]
