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.
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.

My interest in having a career in animal care stemmed from years of working, and living on a horse farm, and having childhood pets that ranged from cats and dogs to Sugar gliders and Iguanas. I have devoted my spare time volunteering with rescues and striving to make a small difference in the lives of needy animals. As I continue to learn here at Atlantic Animal Hospital, I hope to return to school focusing on obtaining my veterinary technician license and then adopt more animals!
