Dr. Holly Erickson was born and raised in Peru, Illinois. She received her DVM from the University of Illinois in 2004 and moved to New Mexico after graduation. She began private practice in the Albuquerque area as a small animal veterinarian and joined Manzano Animal Clinic in 2019. Dr. Erickson and her husband live in the East mountains and share their home with two dogs, Monty, a Corgi, and Mia, a spoiled Yorkshire terrier. They also have two horses, Addy and Zorro, both Percheron crosses, that they enjoy riding in their free time. They also have a goat named Frankie and several chickens. When not at work, Dr. Erickson enjoys motorcycle riding with her husband, hiking, gardening, and spending time outdoors. Her favorite thing about veterinary medicine is working with clients to give their pets the best quality of life through progressive medicine and client education. She loves the journey that she gets to take with our pets every day to keep them healthy.
