Meet our Team

Meet Erin, our new Clinical Manager

Each month we reach out to a Winterberry team member so that we can showcase (and celebrate) them in our monthly Q+A. This month we’re excited to feature Erin, our new Clinical Manager.

Erin, what is your role with Winterberry?
I have recently been promoted to the Clinical Manager at Winterberry Family Medicine. I also work as a part of the clinical research team.

I understand this is a new role for you at Winterberry, what were you doing at Winterberry before you became our Clinical Manager?
Prior to becoming the clinical manager, I was working as a nurse seeing a variety of clinic patient’s, as well as working with the research team on the various research trials.

What interested you about becoming the Clinical Manager? 
I am interested in evolving and growing as a professional, while remaining actively involved in patient care.

What is your professional background, how did you get to where you are today? 
I have always had a passion for mental health and started my nursing career working in both the inpatient and outpatient mental health setting. While working with the outpatient mental health department, I was asked to be a part of the design team for the new hospital site that was being built.

As the Clinical Manager you’re an incredibly vital part of our team, can you share any special moments from Winterberry that made you know that you’re making a positive difference in our patient or team  member lives? 
While working as a nurse at Winterberry, I had been seeing a patient for about 1 year and supporting her with her weight loss journey. Over the course of 1 year, we were able to reduce this patient’s body weight, get her down to a healthy body fat percentage and reduce her HB A1C to a normal level. The patient also reached their weight loss goal and began to cry out of excitement when I shared this news.

When you’re not at work, what are your hobbies and special interests?
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy maintaining an active lifestyle through working out, walking my dogs and rollerblading with my family.
