Erika, our board-certified physician assistant (PA), studied biology at Point Loma Nazarene University and went on to earn her Master’s of Science degree in Physician Assistant Studies at Rutgers University-UMDNJ. She worked 12 years in neurosurgery before making the transition to cosmetic medicine, providing BOTOX® and filler injections. Erika says she loves the opportunity to educate patients on their skincare treatments and empower them to feel more confident, while also developing valuable relationships with each patient. Committed to continuing her education in the latest medical innovations, she is a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, California Academy of Physician Assistants, and the San Diego Society of Physician Assistants. When she is not at work, Erika enjoys spending time with family and friends, church, photography, reading, crocheting, puzzles, and long walks or bike rides.
