In 2017 she became certified as an Aesthetic Injector and continued to pursue her knowledge and growth in the area since. It was through her own personal battle with two autoimmunities that she found her love and passion for functional medicine, gut health and hormone replacement therapy.

In 2019 she completed a fellowship in Anti- Aging and Functional Medicine through the American board of Anti-aging Medicine and became board certified through the American Board of Anti-aging Health Practitioners(ABAAHP). Her goal now is to use a blend of her own personal experience as well as years of research and education to help empower others to heal their own bodies. She has helped hundreds of men and women balance their hormones, heal their guts, and step back into their power. Erin’s goal is to help each patient feel their best inside and out. She loves being able to see the physical transformation in her clients when they are truly feeling their best. Her goal as an injector is to listen and work with your goals to help you step forward with confidence. - Diplomat of Anti-aging, metabolic and functional medicine fellowship through A4M - Board certified through the American Board of Anti-aging Health Practitioners - Manager of Clinical care for BodylogicMD affiliate network - Certified in O-shot and P-shot injections by Charles Runels, MD
