Certified Professional Ergonomist

I started my career in a clinical setting, working with athletes, but quickly became frustrated with the reactive nature of the work. I wanted to be proactive, so transitioning to ergonomics was seamless and fulfilled my desire to take a preventative rather than reactive approach to injury.

Ergonomics also includes a creative element, which had been missing in my career. Every ergonomic challenge has a variety of potential solutions, and the fit of each depends on factors such as workplace culture, layout, budget, and more. I love the challenge of evaluating an ergonomic problem and using innovation and creativity to drive successful solutions that are unique to each client’s needs.

A desire to help people and prevent injuries were always at the heart of ‘my why’ but it wasn’t until I started my Master’s Degree, and dived into ergonomics more deeply, that I found my passion – and quickly realized how it could expand my impact on injury prevention.

Whether I’m delivering a training session, or partnering with a business to solve an ergonomic challenge, I always strive to stay worker-focused, ensuring that every educational moment or ergonomic solution is grounded in preventing injuries in practical and sustainable ways.

I feel privileged knowing that I help guide organizations to a safer workplace every day.

Associate Ergonomist

My interest in ergonomics began while completing my undergraduate Human Kinetics degree. Driven by a passion for understanding human movement, I pursued a Ph.D. in Biomechanics, where I investigated the influence of back muscle fatigue and lift movement (re)training on lumbar spine motion control during repetitive lifting tasks.

I strive to utilize my biomechanical knowledge to reduce the burden of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders in the workplace to ensure everyone gets home safe and injury-free at the end of the workday.

I aim to deliver assessments that apply sound biomechanical analysis to identify physical demands, potential MSD risk factors, and improve human movement at work. With a strong background in functional demands and Return to Work, I strive to bring my deep understanding of injury and employee functional abilities to all assessments to improve workplace fit and function.

My journey into ergonomics was sparked by my father's health struggles due to repetitive work, driving my desire to have a positive impact on protecting workers health. My firsthand experience with MSD injuries sharpens my dedication to preventing similar challenges, ensuring work doesn't compromise workers quality of life.
