Hannah Eilertsen

Special Projects Coordinator | B.Sc. Psychology

Pronouns: she/her


Hannah graduated in 2020 from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology.  Prior to joining CanAssist in July 2021 as a CanWork and AccessWork Job Coach, Hannah worked for the BC Public Service Agency, where she gained experience with research and project coordination for leadership development and diversity and inclusion initiatives.  Furthermore, she worked in collaboration and support of the Work-Able Graduate Internship Program, an initiative providing employment, learning, coaching, and mentorship to recent post-secondary graduates identifying as having a disability.  These experiences have given her foundational knowledge of the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion, and skills in research, stakeholder engagement, and project coordination. 

Hannah has a passion for inclusion and accessibility, and is thrilled to be in the role of Special Projects Coordinator with CanAssist where she has the opportunity to create inclusive education and programming.

Outside of work, Hannah loves being outdoors- hiking, camping, kayaking, skiing, and exploring the West Coast.
