Brianna Bolinger, RN, BSN

As a childhood burn survivor of 19 years, Brianna has learned how to grow through her story to have a multitude of lived experiences. She discovered she was more than just her scars through her years of being a competitive baton twirler. The confidence she gained led her to become a four-time national champion, two-time member of Team USA, and the feature twirler for Western Michigan University. She gained a servant's heart at a young age that led her to travel as a volunteer to Africa twice before the age of 21. Now, you can find her on the floor of a burn unit working as a nurse or outside...enjoying her free time riding some trails on a pair of roller-skates!

Brianna Bolinger received her bachelors of science in Nursing from Western Michigan University with Honors and now works as an RN in a burn unit in Indianapolis, IN. Previously, she has served as a medical volunteer in Africa. Brianna is a childhood burn survivor with a passion for serving the burn community, with a special focus on holistic care and the psycho-social needs of the burn survivor. She recently completed a fellowship with the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors.
