Erin grew up in northern Indiana before moving to Central America as a teenager. Her experience abroad has led to an appreciation of diversity and variety. She enjoys working with people from different cultures and backgrounds as well as with patients in all age groups and with any orthopedic condition. She believes physical therapy should be patient-focused and should address each patient's specific goals for any stage of life. Erin earned a Bachelor of Music degree in string pedagogy from the University of New Mexico in 2010. Her interest in repetitive use injuries in musicians led to a desire to pursue a career in physical therapy. She moved to Oregon in 2012 to attend Pacific University and graduated with her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2015. Erin joined Providence Health & Services in the same year. In her spare time, she enjoys playing and teaching the violin, traveling abroad, volunteering with local organizations, and exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
