Erin is finishing her 1st year of Nursing school at KU Med. Fun things we enjoy doing are visiting the National Parks & gambling in Las Vegas.
SPECIAL INTERESTS: I enjoy hunting and fishing, so besides chasing whitetail, turkey & pheasant around the midwest, I try to plan a nice hunting/fishing trip each year to some far off exotic place. We’ve been to Canada, Colorado and even South Africa for everything from Black Bear, Elk & African plains game. Throw in a few fishing excursions for Ocean Stripper, Northern Pike, Walleye, Rainbow Trout and that just about sums it up.

I graduated 2nd in my class at UMKC School of Dentistry for which I am forever grateful to those science professors that pushed me so hard in undergraduate school at NWMSU.
