Jean completed her Honours Bachelor of Science in Mental Health Studies at the University of Toronto Scarborough. She completed her Master of Arts in the Department of Applied Disability Studies (specialization in applied behaviour analysis) at Brock University (graduated in 2022). Her research interests include understanding the needs of individuals with neurodevelopmental disabilities and their support systems to foster mental health and well-being. Her thesis focused on evaluating the effects of a brief mindfulness mobile application intervention on mindful parenting and non-cooperative behaviours in children with autism. Jean’s research interests have been shaped by her work in the field of developmental disabilities and mental health, particularly her role as a health and research project coordinator at Special Olympics and her work as a behaviour therapist for children and youth with neurodevelopmental disabilities.
