Integrity Medical’s team does more than just help you find the best medical imaging equipment to fit your budget. Our Florida Sales Representative, Chelsea Poppens, recently lent her talents and hard work to a very special project in Ivory Coast, Africa. Many of you in Southwest Florida, especially Lee and Collier counties, have met Chelsea as your area sales rep for diagnostic imaging equipment and service on your X-ray machines, bone densitometers, ultrasounds, and C-Arms. You know her for her persistence, enthusiasm, and genuine care for the good health of your medical equipment.
What you probably don’t know is that before Chelsea began her MBA in Entrepreneurship at the University of Florida and joined the Integrity Medical Sales Team, she was a champion basketball player, a captain of the Iowa State University’s Women’s Basketball Team, and later a Professional Athlete on teams in Switzerland, Poland, Australia, San Antonio, and Seattle. Last September, while playing in Puerto Rico, Chelsea badly tore her ACL, effectively ending a stellar pro career. But Chelsea’s spirit and never-say-die strength of heart turned what would have been a heartbreaking defeat for most people into a devotion to sharing her love of basketball, and her love of life, with young people across the world.
Join us for weekly updates to Chelsea’s journey of spirit and faith, as she travels to Ivory Coast, Africa, with Athletes in Action, a Christian organization affiliated with CRU (Campus Crusade). Chelsea has been on an amazing journey, from physical injury and recovery, to spreading love and hoops continents away from her home in Fort Myers, Florida.
