Erik received his Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Penn State University in University Park, Pennsylvania, in 2010. During his undergraduate career, he worked various jobs, both clinically and research-based, that integrated his interests in human psychology, cognition, and neurological function. He then went on to obtain a Master of Health Science degree from Lock Haven University in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania, and has since commenced his professional practice with the Rebound neurosurgery team.
With an educational history based primarily out of rural Pennsylvania, Erik has developed a fondness for treating the medically underserved. He believes strongly in patient-centered medical care and aims to build a personal relationship with every patient he has the privilege of meeting.
In his off hours, Erik enjoys skateboarding, bike riding, hiking, rock climbing, and most recently, knitting. He is also an avid arts enthusiast and attributes his skills in surgical assisting in part to the coordination and focus required for drawing and painting.
