Meet Jenna SACARE's new Occupational Therapist

We are thrilled to introduce you to SACARE’s brand new Occupational Therapist, Jenna!

Jenna has years of experience working as an OT – specifically with those who have complex needs.

“My focus as a senior OT is on assisting adults with disabilities achieve independence and improved quality of life.
 I have a keen interest in completing assessments for appropriate Assistive Technology and Complex Home Modification Prescriptions for clients with significant disabilities, to support them to achieve their goals and optimise safety and independence. I look forward with working with SACare and supporting their clients in 2022.”

Jenna graduated with a Bachelor of Disability Rehabilitation Degree and then went on to complete her Masters of Occupational Therapy Degree through Flinders University. She secured a graduate position in Geelong, working with adults with disabilities across both inpatient acute and subacute facilities. Her role as an OT included completing assessments across Orthopaedics/General Medicine and Stroke and Neurology for 3.5 years. 

In 2018, Jenna moved back to Adelaide, where she commenced a Senior OT role in a private company and worked in the complex needs team for 3.5 years. In this role she was working predominantly with NDIS clients completing complex assessments (including Functional Capacity and Exploring Housing Assessments, Carer Training, Assistive Technology and Minor and Complex Home Modifications), as well as completing assessments and interventions for other funding streams and contracts. 

In her personal time, Jenna is planning to build our dream home  with her husband,
 “My passion is working on the design and functionality for every part of the space. I love environmental design and it will be very supportive of what we need both now and into the future - definitely, lots of my OT skills have gone into the planning!”

Other than that, Jenna enjoys spending time with her husband playing board games, watching movies and I has  a keen interest in French culture. “My husband and I eloped to Paris in 2018, which was a lovely adventure.”

SACARE are excited to have Jenna joining the team at The Gums, and event more excited to announce that Jenna is ready to take on new clients!
