Along with medicine and problem solving, Dr. Erin is extremely fond of the connections that develop between humans and animals. As a veterinarian, she gets to combine all of her interests, skills, and passions to serve the pets and owners of the Austin area!
Dr. Erin grew up in southern Texas with her parents and sister. She got her start in the veterinary field at the ripe age of 12, when she began volunteering in her hometown veterinary clinic. She continued to work at a neighboring hospital while she attended Texas A&M University for her undergraduate studies and veterinary school, working as a surgery technician in the College’s Veterinary Medicine Small Animal Clinic at the same time. In 1999, she graduated with her DVM degree and moved to Austin with her husband. Together with her business partner, Dr. Greg Biehle, she opened Austin Urban Veterinary Center in December of 2009.
Endocrine cases like Cushing’s disease, diabetes, and hypothyroidism are some of Dr. Erin’s favorite medical challenges. No two days are ever the same! She also loves the long-term relationships she gets to foster with clients and their pets.
Dr. Erin met her husband, Dale, at Texas A&M during her freshman year. They have two boys together, Gavin and Logan, and share their home with two dogs named Cassie and Gus.
Dr. Erin serves as Gavin’s Cub Scout leader in her spare time and is proud to have received the Northern Star Award for leadership in her Pack. She also enjoys scrapbooking, snow skiing, kayaking, camping, and relaxing with a glass of wine when she has the chance.
