Academic Degree: 
Campus: UMD | Building: School of Public Health

Faculty Advisor: 

A kinesiology undergraduate of three years and a fourth year member of the University of Maryland gymnastics team, Kirsten Peterman will be continuing her education in the form of graduate study at UMD. Peterman will be a part of the Masters of Kinesiology program with a general focus on Cognitive Motor Neuroscience. With that being said, under the advising of Dr. Smith she will be delving deeper into the relationship between brain health and exercise which she strongly believes will assist with her future goals of becoming a sports psychologist. Aside from her area of study, Peterman is a native of Canada and the oldest of three who enjoys challenging herself to learn, grow and succeed both inside and outside of the classroom.
