Ergonomics and You

I am a Certified Applied Ergonomist (CAE) and received my certification as a Remote Ergonomics Assessment Specialist (REAS). I have a Masters Degree in Human Factors and Ergonomics and Bachelors Degree in Occupational Therapy from San Jose State University.
I have conducted Ergonomic evaluations as an Ergonomics specialist for close to 20 years in many Silicon Valley companies. I am seeing the need to provide Ergonomic services to the small business or home businesses within my community. I want to provide services to those that don’t have Ergonomic services from their company now that they are working from home. I love finding ways to reduce or prevent discomfort in client’s work area or be proactive and set up the workstation correct the first time. Sometimes it is as simple as putting a book under the monitor to raise the monitor height or taking the step to get a sit to stand workstation to vary your position during the day.
I have also done many Office and Back Safety Training classes for a variety of Silicon Valley companies. These trainings give the user information on how to set up their workstation Ergonomically.
I am the meeting coordinator for the Bay Area Ergonomics Roundtable (BAER) where I help bring in speakers and vendors to talk to us about many subject matters and show the latest products. This benefits me because I can take the information and apply it in my evaluations or the products I recommend for my clients.
