As a founding parent, Sue Simpson has been part of the Waterloo Region Family Network (WRFN) story since the beginning. She has watched the network grow from a small group of volunteer families into a thriving organization that’s equipped to support thousands of people touched by exceptional needs. In her role as executive director, Sue oversees all operations and represents WRFN on many community collaboratives. Sue has been an active advocate for disability-related issues since the premature birth of her youngest son 34 years ago. Her personal and family journey with critical and emergency medical issues has shaped her inclusive approach to supporting other families facing similar experiences. She believes in building strong reciprocal relationships and a community of respect and belonging for all. A Wilfrid Laurier University graduate, Sue enjoys spending time with her family, including her husband, two adult sons, and her daughter-in-law. She is the proud recipient of the 2018 Empowered Kids Ontario (EKO) Tribute Award for Leadership.
The Journal for the Humanities in Rehabilitation is a peer reviewed, multi-media journal using a collaborative model with rehabilitation professionals, patients and their families to gain a greater understanding of the human experience of disability through art, literature and narrative. The purpose of this interdisciplinary journal is to raise the consciousness and deepen the intellect of the humanistic relationship in the rehabilitation sciences.
