Veterinary Assistant

Erin

Erin has always loved animals and always had pets growing up but didn’t think she would end up where she is today. 

She was born in Omaha, Nebraska, has spent most of her life there and always thought she would never leave. She began working her way towards a Criminal Justice degree at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. She then met her husband Dan, who is from Carroll, Iowa. That brought them to the Des Moines area and her to us in February of 2008. She has always felt like the opportunity found her and changed her path in life. 

Over the years she has acquired an interest in surgery, radiology, and nutrition. 

One of the things she loves the most about her job is being able to help patients when they aren’t able to tell us what’s wrong and don’t know that we are just trying to help them. “To be able to do that for the patients and their parents fills my heart!”

When she’s not working, you can usually find her doing some sort of project such as refurbishing old furniture or making something new for the house (with the help of her 3 fur kids, Max, Raymie, and Moose). She also enjoys reading, watching college sports and the Cubs or a good television series. She loves Nebraska football!
