Kennel AssistantErin Gregory
Erin has been around animals my entire life but has only been working in the veterinary field for close to three years now. She's gotten to experience many different aspects of the veterinary hospital and looks forward to experiencing more during her tenure at VCA. Erin loves spending time with my dogs in the outdoors, camping, hiking, and other pet friendly outdoor activities. She's intrigued by the paranormal, and also enjoy horseback riding any chance she gets. She has a full blooded Siberian Husky named Cana and a Siberian Husky mix named Rufus. She love animals! She can’t remember not having at least one dog through out my life and she's ALWAYS wanted to be able to help them in any way she can!
