As a Florida native being born and raised in Palm Beach, Erica is thrilled to return to the Sunshine State. After living in Chicago and Charlotte for the last ten years, she could not be more eager to join the team at PVPS. Her introduction to healthcare began when she served as an ER volunteer at UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Florida. That experience drove her to become an LPN and explore opportunities at smaller, out-patient medical centers. Starting first in dermatology, Erica relished being ìhands onî with patients. Shortly thereafter, she moved into plastics where she feels she is meant to be. After several years in a nursing role, Erica has since transitioned to her current role as a patient care coordinator. This position allows her to do what she enjoys most: shepherding patients through the entire process of surgery ñ beginning with consultations and through to recovery. She looks forward to guiding you along every step of the way and providing you with patient education, resources and information regarding financing solutions to make your dream a reality. Outside of the office, Erica enjoys spending time with her husband and two, young sons. As newbies to the Jacksonville area, Erica's family loves trying out new restaurants and spending time with family and friends at the beach.
