S1EP4: Purpose Over Obstacles with Nicole O'Brien
Dr. Nicole O’Brien is a critical care physician at Nationwide Children’s hospital in Columbus, Ohio. She’s also an Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine for the Ohio State University College of Medicine.
In 2015, Nicole received the Fulbright Africa Regional Research Program award to work in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. She’s also received several NIH grants for research related to neurologic diseases in remote regions of Africa.
Along with her husband Will O’Brien, Nicole founded Restore Elikia, a nonprofit organization that works to provide sustainable orphan care and community development in a remote region of the Congo.
Nicole is a mom of four children. She travels back and forth between Ohio and Africa. When stateside, she and her family call Bexley home.
Several years ago, Nicole and Will faced the unimaginable loss of their adopted children from the Congo. That experience both traumatized them (including losing the ability to speak for Nicole), and guided them to living the purpose they have shared all along.
Listen to their fascinating story of grit and determination, and how Nicole overcame her limitations despite all the challenges. At the end of the conversation, Nicole shares how she’s choosing to live fully and what she thinks we need to do to optimize our second chapter.

Work with Kit Yoon
Kit inspires me.
This podcast is perfect to listen to for daily inspiration.
Grounding and interesting!
Lately I’ve been loving Kit’s podcast - her conversations and overall energy feel very grounded and supportive while also keeping things light and interesting. The questions asked feel genuine and non-scripted which allows the knowledge gained and learning to come through in a gentle and inviting way! Thank you!
Kit Yoon is 88% perfect...
...And that is good enough for me!
I listen every Monday morning to start my week. Each show encourages you to be the best you, without trying to be 100%, which is exhausting and silly.
Let 88% be your perfect and see the amazing things you can do with your life,as encouraged by, Kit❣️
