This fearless mother of two is also one of the most adventurous women in sports today. She discovers and appreciates the Earth through climbing peaks and skiing. Her daring has led her to become the “first woman to climb two 8,000m peaks in 24 hours (Everest and Lhotse)” and has taken her all over the world, from Colorado to India. Named National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2018, Nelson truly knows how to appreciate the Earth’s natural beauty.
