My name is Dr. Erickson and I have been a Veterinarian at Portland Veterinary Wellness Center since 2005. As a child, I enjoyed taking care of my various neighbors’ pets in Deer Park, Long Island, New York. At 13 years old, I read James Herriot’s Veterinary books and I knew I wanted to be a Veterinarian. I graduated in 1993 from Oregon State University with my DVM. After college, I spent three years working as a Veterinarian in Fairbanks, Alaska. In my free time, I enjoy photography, playing the guitar, fitness training, my motorcycle and my cat, Spencer.
