Erin has been providing care to women since graduating with her Bachelors of Science in Nursing degree in 2006. Initially caring for gynecological and high risk antepartum patients, Erin transitioned to Labor & Delivery where she worked for eight years and obtained her certification in Inpatient Obstetrics. While a labor nurse, Erin attended a Passion for Birth seminar, was a breastfeeding resource on the unit and presented a research project on skin-to-skin during cesarean delivery at an international nursing conference. Her highest achievement during this time, however, was the birth of her own child.
In 2015, Erin decided to become part of the Partner's in Women's Healthcare Triage Department. She has a passion for providing patients with information to make the best, most informed decisions for themselves and their families. Erin is currently working on obtaining her Masters of Science in Nursing Education.
