Hannah Nishimoto,
Equipment Director

This native Southern Californian is currently the Equipment Manager for The Unrecables. She has been a life member of The Unrecables since 1992 after being introduced to the adaptive skiing community and this club by Randi Woodrow. Since then she has volunteered as an adaptive ski instructor for the Disabled Veterans National Winter Sports Clinic and most recently the New England Winter Sports clinic.

Hannah was first introduced to the disabled community by working at Camp Paivika operated by the Crippled Children’s Society now called Ability First. She worked there as a counselor and Unit Director. After returning from three years in the US Army, she worked as the camp director for a few years. Several Paivikans from the past are now Unrecables.

Hannah has been a federal employee for over 30 years with 27 years at the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center. Her career began as a Rehabilitation Counselor and then into management positions within the Physical Medicine Rehabilitation Department and for the past two years as the Administrative Officer/ Health Systems Specialist with the Imaging and Nuclear Medicine Service.

Hannah has enjoyed all the friends she has made through this organization and is an advocate for members both disabled and non for taking control of one’s destiny by becoming as independent as possible regardless of the challenges life hands you. Hannah thanks The Unrecables for allowing her to share her time and skills with all its members.
