Her passion lies in her patients' goals, whether for Athletic Therapy, or FST(Fascial Stretch Therapy). She prides herself on a solid relationship of understanding and trust with every patient she works with, including enjoying the journey towards success, and learning something along the way.
Erin grew up on a beef and grain farm in rural central Alberta, and soon called Lethbridge home after completing her education.

Her day wouldn't be complete without a little sarcasm, or a good pun.
