Erin has been practicing at our Ventura clinic since its opening in 2021, focusing primarily on the management of chronic headaches. She utilizes a wide range of innovative, evidence-based headache interventions like Botox, trigger point injections, medications, and additional methods known to prevent or treat migraines and other chronic headaches. Erin is especially passionate about Botox and its multiple therapeutic uses including migraine prevention, reduction of muscle spasticity, relief from jaw pain/TMJ symptoms, decreased sweating, and its wide array of cosmetic benefits.
Prior to her education as a Physician Assistant, Erin worked as a Phlebotomist for 2 years, including an internship at the Marine Corps Recruiting Depot in San Diego. She has extensive experience working with needles and helping to make even the most needle-phobic patients feel comfortable during their procedures, whether they be for medical or cosmetic reasons.
