Out of the office

Although a Chicago native, one of Erin’s favorite activities is exploring new neighborhoods and restaurants all around her hometown. Outside of the clinic she can be found running the riverfront trails, attending a spin class, or reading a book. Growing up, Erin spent a lot of time in Ireland with her family and has loved traveling ever since! She hopes to continue expanding her international travel experiences in the near future.
