Erika Howe

Veterinary Assistant

Born and raised in Washington State, but her heart belongs to the ocean & Disney. After graduating from Interlake High School, she decided to skip college and work for a bit.

Since 2015 she’s still going strong and always eager to learn something new in the field. She lives with her wonderful soon to be husband, Ken, his 2 children, 2 dogs, Lilly and Edison, and 2 cats, Cleopatra and Rajah. While they are homebodies, they enjoy hiking, motorcycle rides, and anything that involves swimming.
