As a graphic designer, I developed a repetitive strain injury resulting from excessive work with a computer mouse. I retrained as an ergonomist, graduating from San Jose State University with a Masters degree in Human Factors and Ergonomics. My undergraduate degree is in fine arts. Hence ErgoArts - 2 sides of me!

I have 20 years of hands on experience as a professional ergonomics consultant for companies of all sizes, and individuals working from home. I have helped injured employees return to work and guides companies into compliance with OSHA standards. My approximate 20,000 assessments take place in a range of environments including business offices, schools, people building airplanes, and so on. I consulted on ergonomic tool/equipment design projects, and created illustrations of repetitive strain injuries for a training manual. I made ergonomic teaching videos for the new work from home population (WFH), presented at GOSH, ASSP, SWCA.

I am a member of Puget Sound Human Factors & Ergonomics Society, and the Bay Area Ergonomic Roundtable.
