Erin Hisrich, DVM, MPH
I grew up right here in Flagstaff, attending Cromer Elementary and Mount Elden Middle School and Flagstaff has always been “home.” After completing my bachelor’s degree at NAU, I moved to Columbus, Ohio and received my Masters Degree in Veterinary Public Health at Ohio State. I attended veterinary school at Colorado State University where I earned my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. I was very fortunate to have been selected for research grants that allowed me to spend summers working on projects in South America, Indonesia, and Africa. I am a published author, and I hope that I made a small contribution in these countries, teaching about diseases transmitted between humans and animals, enhancing the local people’s agricultural skills and improving animal welfare. I still love to travel and volunteer abroad and continue to participate in spay/neuter clinics in developing countries.
I am an avid sports lover and enjoy almost everything that gets me outdoors. Some of my favorite activities outside of veterinary medicine include hiking, camping, fishing, snowshoeing, and whitewater rafting. Another water sport I especially enjoy is diving, which fuels an intense interest in marine life. Riding horses on the trails also ranks high on my list of hobbies. I have extensive experience showing Arabian horses and have won multiple United States Reserve National Championships.
I have an exceptional family that includes my parents, two sisters, a brother, three nieces, two nephews, and my husband and soulmate, Dr. Jesse Saul. All of my siblings graduated from NAU and we all live right here in Flagstaff. Our furry family includes two dogs, four very naughty cats, and two horses.
My love of animals is a huge driving factor in my life and I feel so fortunate that I am able to have a career that is also my vocation.
