We first met Erin when she requested a 300-hour externship at our hospital. This externship would fulfill one of the requirements for her Berkshire Community College Animal Technician Certificate. Erin completed her requirements and we were very pleased to have her join our staff as a full time employee.
Erin graduated from Berkshire Community College with a Bachelor of Arts Degree and a Certificate in Animal health. In the fall of 2003 she passed the Massachusetts Veterinary Technician Certification exam to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. Pursuing continuing education, she has successfully renewed her certification annually since first achieving it.
Erin is an experienced technician and clearly enjoys working with people as well as providing the best possible care for our patients. She enjoys educating clients and the community on animal health and wellbeing, as well as the ins and outs of her career as a Veterinary Technician, volunteering her time at schools , educational camps, and career days.
Outside of Berkshire Veterinary Hospital Erin has been a part of the Terpsichore Dance Center Family for 28 years and has been teaching youth hip-hop there for the past ten years. Erin is very close to her family and enjoys spending as much quality time as possible with them. She looks forward to her annual Maine Vacation with all of the family that is able to go. She has become active in the Girlscouts of America. For the past few years, she became the "cookie mom" to local troop 957, and has also become active in fundraising for ALS (Lou Gehrigs Disease) ever since her father was diagnosed in 2011. She and her partner Cory are currently in the process of comletely renovating an old family home with the hopes of making it new again very soon for their growing family which consists of their three children, Lilah, Beau, and Grady, and their many furry, feathered and finned little ones too!!
Erin has been part of our hospital for almost twenty years. She still loves working at Berkshire Veterinary Hospital. She has enjoyed taking on many new responsibilities, and most of all she clearly loves her Berkshirevet "Family". We are very fortunate to have her on board.
