Erika graduated in 2013 from Colorado Mountain College with a degree in Applied Science in Veterinary Technology. She received her RVT license right after graduation and has practiced medicine in New York, Colorado, and California. She is a strong advocate for the ‘pit bull’ type breeds and works hard to change society’s perception of these inherently good dogs. When she’s not in the office, Erika enjoys hiking, skiing, camping, and exploring the wilderness with her husband Wade and her Staffordshire Bull terriers, Shorty and Caddy.
