Erika joined the Northwest Animal Eye Specialists team in early 2020 as a Licensed Veterinary Technician who works full time at our Kirkland location. She had been working in the veterinary field for 4 years prior to joining NWAES. Some of her favorite aspects of working in the veterinary field are seeing the bond people have with their pets, educating clients, and providing the best possible care for patients! Aside from ophthalmology, Erika takes great interest in anesthesia and dentals - especially ones involving extractions.
Erika has a variety of pets: a pitbull named Duke, a Scottish Terrier named Tweak, a Domestic Short Hair cat named Mister, a Columbian Redtail Boa named Smaug, and some chickens. She is native to the Pacific Northwest and she loves hiking and cooking in her free time.
