About Dr. Lynn Kerew D.C. M.P.H.
Dr. Lynn Kerew, D.C. M.P.H. has been in private practice in Santa Monica, CA since 1996 and is also the Corporate Chiropractor for Electronic Arts Los Angeles since 2005.
After completing her Baccalaureate (B.S.) in Nutrition at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 1984 and obtaining her Masters Degree in Public Health (M.P.H.) - Health Education - from UCLA in 1986, Dr. Kerew spent 10 years in Corporate America working with Healthcare Information Systems for three national healthcare corporations and five major hospitals.
It was here that Dr. Kerew earned her ergonomic stripes as she was exposed to poor worksite computer station conditions and worked within these corporations to make the workstations more user friendly to the employees.
In 1996, Dr. Kerew graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Los Angeles with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree (D.C.). Since 2005, Dr. Kerew has served as the sole Corporate Chiropractor for Electronic Arts Los Angeles (EALA) where she treats EALA employees with ergonomic and clinical concerns. She provides sound ergonomic advice to the employees about their work stations and ergonomic products to use to make their workday more productive and enjoyable.
She created this site to allow anyone to have access to her knowledge. Here you will find suggested products she recommends for being proactive in your work and life. The intention is to create more ease and less physical stress in your body as most musculoskeletal (upper and lower body) pain is preventable with the right ergonomics.
