Erik has lived in the Bay Area his whole life, and has always had an affinity for animals of all species. Erik began his journey to animal care by working as a receptionist/kennel attendant at his local veterinarian office. He was quickly promoted to veterinary assistant and fell in love with the field (and the patients he got to work with!). Now employed at Veterinary Vision, he is eager to absorb as much knowledge as he can so he may better help the doctors treat their patients. His interests include ethology, rugby, surfing, and rollerblading, but also takes pride in helping the nervous pets feel more relaxed and at home during their office visits. Erik hopes to one day embark on expeditions to observe wildlife, big or small, in their natural habitat, but while working at Veterinary Vision, he hopes to earn the trust and friendship of you and your animal friends!
