Receptionists | Operators
Erin, Operator/Receptionist- Customer Service SupervisorI relocated to Wilmington from Ohio in 2013 and was happy to find my place here at Atlantic Animal Hospital. Prior to coming here, my experience was related to kennel and doggie daycare but I have found I thrive in my operator position. This has enabled me to spend time with the pets but also develop relationships with their owners. In my spare time, I enjoy scuba diving and salsa dancing.
I jumped at the chance to live by the beach after having spent my childhood in Lancaster, PA. I chose to be a part of the Atlantic Animal Hospital team after hearing of a customer service position opening from my, then neighbor, Mica (a technician here). I have spent my life around animals and can't think of a more rewarding way to spend my day then caring for the pets that come through the doors. My cats Marina & Simba are nice enough to share their home with my husband, Sean and myself. We hope that a future addition of a German shepherd will complete out furry brood.
There is nothing about animals that I don't love. I have worked in pet related retail stores for many years but am fortunate to have been able to expand my career by joining Atlantic Animal Hospital. It is so rewarding to be able to help both the clients and patients on a daily basis. As the first in my family to attend college, I am looking to complete my associates degree at Cape Fear Community College and then pursue my desire to study canine rehabilitation. When I am not here spoiling your furry loved ones, I spend time playing outdoors with my friend's German Sheperd mix, Zasha.
Like most everyone of my coworkers, the unconditional love of animals is what has drawn me to a career in the veterinary field. Growing up in Spivey's Corner, NC, there was never a shortage, and variety, of animals surrounding me. I loved the trips to the local veterinarian with our pets and watching the advancements in veterinary medicine over the years. While attending UNC- Wilmington for Environmental Science, I volunteered with Paws 4 People where I was able to help train service dogs. In addition to this experience, I have worked in customer service and animal care at a doggie daycare facility and have a menagerie of personal pets which include,5 dogs, 3 guinea pigs, 3 rats, a turtle and a fish. I hope to establish an animal sanctuary where I can help abused and neglected farm animals.
Born in Wilson, NC southern hospitality is my specialty. I understand the positive impact pets have on their families and look forward to providing the best to our clients and their pets. I am fortunate to have spent many hours volunteering with no-kill shelters and have animal behavior knowledge after working for a doggie daycare facility. I have two furry family members of my own, Chloe (a pug/terrier mix) and Whiskers (tuxedo cat), and hope to some day focus my career on animal rescue.
