Sue Peters obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Western Ontario. Working as a Kinesiologist, Sue was interested in understanding normal human movement and how therapeutic exercise could facilitate recovery after an injury. To improve her understanding of motor performance and injury recovery, Sue returned to university to complete a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy. While working clinically as a Physiotherapist, Sue worked with people with a variety of neurological injuries, such as stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease. She became curious with how the brain functions especially after injury. She is currently pursuing a PhD in Rehabilitation Science in the Faculty of Medicine at UBC. Sue’s research aims to better understand the role of motor planning and how it contributes to motor performance after a stroke.
