Jen Estrella

Project Coordinator

I am a registered occupational therapist who has experience enabling individuals with disabilities to engage in everyday activities that are meaningful to them and the Pathways to Belonging project coordinator who has been coordinating and implementing qualitative and mixed methods research studies within the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy (OS & OT) for five years.

I’m currently involved in research on belonging for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities; traumatic brain injury in underserved populations; and occupational therapy and student mental health. I graduated from the Department of OS & OT at the University of Toronto where she received the Most Outstanding Research Project Award for her research project which focused on the potential of a model of service in addressing occupational imbalance and deprivation and social isolation in secure psychiatric settings.
