- Numotion, the nation’s leading provider of Complex Rehab Technology (CRT), is proud to announce a three-year partnership with three-time U.S. Paralympic gold medalist swimmer and World Champion, McKenzie Coan. A Numotion customer herself, Coan will serve as a spokesperson for the company, sharing her motivational message to empower others.
“Numotion is honored to have McKenzie Coan align with Numotion and our efforts to raise the general public’s awareness of our industry,” said Bret Barczak CMO, Numotion. “McKenzie’s high profile, especially over the next year, will help bring more attention to CRT and the customers we serve, spreading the word about the work we do at Numotion and in the disability community at large.”
Diagnosed at a young age with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or brittle bone disease, Coan has met her share of challenges and turns each one into an opportunity for growth. She began swimming as part of an aqua therapy program, and it quickly became her passion. As a Paralympian, she has been able to share her story of resilience and determination with aspiring swimmers across the world.
“I have a philosophy I try to live my life by – the only disability in life is a bad attitude,” said McKenzie Coan, who won five medals at the 2019 World Championships. “I look forward to sharing my experience and my story with Numotion’s customers, employees and anyone faced with challenges, in hopes of inspiring them to go after their dreams.”
Content created by Coan will share her personal experience of overcoming the odds to achieve her dreams through social content.
