Who am I?

Magic happens when you step outside your comfort zone. And that’s exactly what happened to me. After studying as a physiotherapist, I did various jobs.

That’s until I caught the bug for ergonomics and came to work at Mensura as an ergonomist in 2017. I have presented courses on ergonomics in various sectors and also carried out ergonomics-related projects with clients. More recently, I have focused mainly on the risk analysis of people who work with display screens.

I also like to push back the limits of my comfort zone in my spare time, for example when doing sport or travelling.

Your body hears everything your mind says." Naomi Judd


I am very much at home in ergonomic improvement programmes, risk analyses and ergonomic screening. My knowledge of good ergonomics in office equipment enables me to give clients targeted advice. Plus you can always count on me for training courses, individual coaching sessions and advice about working with display screens.
