Hannah Nolan, Program Coordinator and After-School Instructor
Favorite Outdoor Activities
Hiking, backpacking, scuba diving, free diving, SUP, and jumping into all the bodies of water.
Why I Joined Betties360
So many reasons! More than anything I want to help instill in young women the belief that they are awesome and can do anything. There are so many confusing societal messages that young girls receive that can really destroy confidence. I think by being outside and forming strong communities, we can smash those messages.
What do you do when you’re not working at Betties360?

I’m a science educator with OMSI. You can find me enthusiastically prancing around the halls and gesticulating frantically about the awesomeness of science. You can also find me swimming in almost any body of water, or keying out wildflowers on a hike.
