Nadia is from Leduc, Alberta and is in her second year playing for the Augustana Vikings, primarily as a Second. She is enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Physical Education - Kinesiology and one day hopes to serve others in an unknown career. As a returning player, vanBruinessen hopes to develop into a stronger and more dependent player, and to bring home an ACAC banner with her team. vanBruinessen was awarded the Female Most Improved player in the 2018-2019 season. She involves herself in the Augustana Outdoors Club, Science Club, and volunteers at Little Rockers. When vanBruinessen is not at the curling rink you can find her enjoying time with friends, taking a nap, or enjoying the outdoors. Her favorite movie is Crazy Rich Asians and her favorite food is tied with shepherds pie and chicken pot pie.
One of her favorite inspirational quotes is: “If someone tells you ‘you can’t’ they are showing you their limits not yours!” By Unknown.
Nadia, is supported by her parents Joyce and Andy, brothers Daniel and Pieter, and sister and alumni Emma.
