Program Coordinator II

Tatiana Perilla holds a Master of Social Work from Utah State University and is a Program Coordinator at the Institute for Disability Research, Policy, and Practice (IDRPP). She is interested in the intersection of disabilities with domestic violence, and mental health with a focus on multicultural populations. Tatiana works on projects surrounding these interests and is currently a part of the following: Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities National Training Center; a rural health project seeking to improve public health systems in Utah; and the Utah Mental Health and Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities Project. Before IDRPP, she worked in various educational settings and child welfare in Utah and Florida.

As someone who truly loves to learn, Tatiana is always looking for opportunities to further develop her knowledge. She is excited to be a current Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) Trainee and an Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) Emerging Leaders Training and Outreach Intern.

Outside of work you can find Tatiana playing racquetball, making art, doing too much sudoku, and spending time with her daughter.
