OMAHA, Nebraska (August 18, 2021) – KidGlov, a boutique marketing and advertising agency based out of Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., was proud to host Patricia Kearns, president and CEO of Omaha-based QLI, a rehabilitation center serving individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury, stroke, and spinal cord injury. In the episode, the podcast explores QLI’s unique approach for supporting residents and how neuroplasticity is central to their services and culture.
“Sitting down with Patricia Kearns of QLI was a pleasure,” said Lyn Wineman, host of the Agency for Change podcast and president and chief strategist at KidGlov advertising agency. “Not only does she run a world-class rehabilitation center, QLI’s highly collaborative and patient-centered approach is truly delivering life-changing care.”
During the podcast, Kearns explains that recovery from a traumatic injury requires a whole-person approach. Along with intensive therapy, QLI clinicians and teams help residents rebuild their lives. “Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to adapt and reorganize based on the demands placed upon it,” said Kearns. She explained the science has significant implications for a clinical standpoint, in recovering from brain trauma or stroke, but also from a recovery standpoint in the brain’s ability to heal, learn and develop new skills.
For Kearns, neuroplasticity can be applied not only to patients but in the development of her staff. QLI encourages its employees to grow through coaching and new learning opportunities. The group also works alongside the Avenue Scholars and the Omaha Public Power District’s legacy program in working with high school students or recent graduates to help them prepare for a career in the healthcare field.

More than a center of excellence whose relentless experts push the boundaries of rehab with cutting-edge technology and industry-forwarding research, QLI puts real-world skills and real-world passions first.
