Q&A With Rebecca Schumer
1. Would you mind telling us a little bit about yourself Rebecca?
I’m a 36 year old sports Physical Therapist working for MedStar in Baltimore, MD. I was a dual division one sport athlete at GW then earned my doctorate degree in PT from there as well. I’ve had many surgeries and concussions, and given I can’t compete anymore, I took up ultramarathon trail running.
2. How long have you been using Peak?
I used Peak consistently for about six months, now every once in a while.
3. Did you set out to use Peak for a particular reason?
I used peak to help improve my reaction time, and to sharpen my brain with memory and hand/eye coordination.
4. Has playing Peak helped you in any capacity and how?
Peak was extremely helpful for me when acutely dealing with my concussion. I was diligent about using the app daily and came to enjoy the games.
5. What do you like about this app?
The app is straightforward to use, there’s a wide variety of different games to target areas that may be challenging for the individual. I also appreciate the feedback with scores and the ability to increase in levels.
6. Is there anything you wish the app had or you think we could improve on?
I didn’t have any issues with it.
7. Do you have any message for the people behind the app?
Thank you for making it and helping me in my journey to recovery!
