Backed by decades of experience producing exceptional clinical outcomes, Kintinu Telerehab connects recovery to everyday life. In this podcast, we explore hot topics in rehabilitation, the keys to personal growth and recovery, and how to apply it all to the real-world.
In this episode of Kintinu’d Conversations, Brad Dexter, Ana Hancock, and Tim Benak welcome Nicole Brungardt to the podcast to hear her amazing journey from high school and collegiate sports to becoming an award winning bobsledder with Team USA. Nicole hails from Nebraska originally and grew up playing many sports, including basketball, volleyball and track. She went on to receive a multitude of awards in both her high school and college careers before graduating and working in the corporate world. Something deep within Nicole continued to tell her that her time in athletics was not complete; thus started the journey to join the USA bobsledding team.
Listeners will hear Nicole’s story of resilience, the importance of having a strong support system, and how her motivation and love for the sport kept her coming back for more.
