Hi, I'm Erica, and I've been a part of the Westchase Veterinary Center team since January 2019. I once had aspirations of becoming a Veterinarian but fell in love with my role as a Veterinary Nurse/Technician, and have been doing it since 2011. I am currently a Certified Fear Free professional, and am now working on completing my Associates degree in Veterinary Technology with Penn Foster College. A big professional goal of mine is to become a Veterinary Technician Specialist in Clinical Practice or Nutrition. I have 3 pets, all of whom I love VERY much: Sprite, the grandpa, who's a 12 year old Chihuahua, Memphis, a 6 year old Brown Tabby DSH, and Spud, my 5 year old Black and White kitty with a crooked mustache and the personality of a kitten! When I'm not at work or studying, I enjoy exploring Florida's various parks and beaches, and doing any kind of art (painting, drawing, 3D, etc.).
