She has worked in psychiatric hospitals, community mental health services and pain clinics. Jacintha is experienced in assessment and treatment in the areas of mental health and chronic pain.
Jacintha has family members with chronic conditions, and she sees the challenges they face. Jacintha became an OT because she wanted to help people with chronic conditions to do the things that are important to them, and have a better quality of life.

Jacintha is a mother with three young sons. One of her sons has a connective tissue disorder, so she has first-hand experience with managing this condition.
