Erika is our lead technician and in charge of making sure your pets get the very best in nursing care. Erika joined our Flowertown family in December 2016 but she started her career in veterinary medicine over 8 years ago. Erika is passionate about caring for animals in need and when she’s not working as one of our amazing technicians, she spends her free time volunteering her time fostering animals for overpopulated shelters.
Erika and her husband, James moved their family to the Lowcountry in 2011 and can’t ever imagine leaving! They live right here in Summerville with their three boys (Cody, Tanner & Kolton). When she is not chasing after her boys, Erika loves spending time with her many fur babies; 4 dogs, 3 cats, a bearded dragon and a cockatiel. Erika also loves crafting and spending time with family and friends in her pool.
Erika’s goal is to make sure both animals and humans always feel welcome and comfortable at FAH and to treat every patient like she would her own furbabies!
Tarayn was born in Paris, TX, but raised in Summerville SC and has since loved living here in the Lowcountry. Tarayn has wanted to work with animals since she was a little girl and she would often be found outside bringing home neighborhood strays.
Tarayn joined FAH in 2017 but she has worked as a veterinary technician since 2012, starting in the shelter veterinary field at a no kill animal shelter where her passion for helping homeless animals in need grew even stronger. Private practice is a new experience for Tarayn but she is very excited to dive right on in and learn and grow at FAH.
When Tarayn isn't working she's spending time with her family and friends. Tarayn and her fiancé Patrick met a little over two years ago and are currently planning their wedding for April 2018. Tarayn has two husky rescues (Sophie and Thor) that came all the way from El Paso TX when her fiancé was stationed there in the army. She also has a one eyed cat named Hootie who is the love of her life!
Tarayn is very excited about developing relationships with both patients and clients. Her main goal is to make sure every animal and human she meets feels comfortable and at home at FAH.
