Mental Health in the Shop
Keren Barr

In the last few years, NAPBIRT has given us many opportunities to study how to make the workplace more efficient and productive for our physical health. Also in the last few years, as I have spent too many hours on the bench and less on myself. I realize the value of bringing a mental health discussion to the table. Ergonomics is literally defined as a study of the efficiency in the workplace.

In this clinic we will explore ergonomics for the brain. How can we make our mental health better in order to make us more efficient in our shops? Come to this clinic to learn how to put personal care as a top priority. Set healthy boundaries while dealing with customers/co-workers and set your mind to conquering difficult repairs. You will learn how to be more mindful and how to implement some tips and tricks to become a better you and a better repair tech.
An Atlanta native, Keren Barr is the co-founder and owner of North Georgia Band. She earned her undergraduate degree in Music Education from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) and after teaching band in the metro area for several years, she went back to school to complete the Band Instrument Repair Program at Minnesota State College - Southeast Technical in Red Wing, MN.

Keren is a Muramatsu and Straubinger certified flute technician, training with Paul Rabinov and David Straubinger and has also been an active member of NAPBIRT since 2004. Keren stays very involved within the musical community; she is a flautist and choir member for Shallowford Presbyterian Church and plays double seconds and sings for Atlanta's Steel Dreamin', a Caribbean rock band.
