Paddle Advocate



Hannah Nelson




A local to the Olympic Peninsula, who grew up in Port Townsend Washington.

By day she is the mom to a sweet spunky 4 year old named Neah.

By night, Hannah is a registered nurse in the emergency department at her local hospital.

She has years of experience stand up paddle boarding, working on whale watching boats and living and working on various small yachts in the pacific northwest and Alaska.

She has been stand up paddle boarding for 12 years and is excited about getting people of all ages on the water and challenging herself as well.

Her most recent accomplishment is paddling across the strait of Juan de Fuca from Port

Angeles, WA to Victoria Canada to raise awareness around domestic violence and as a fundraiser for a local non-profit called Healthy Families of Clallam County.

Hannah values empowerment and is committed to being a role model for her daughter, demonstrating how strong and worthy women are of fulfilling their individual

purposes and dreams.

And she believes there is healing power in spending time on the water together.
