Since 2009, Dr. Ervin has worked at all levels of veterinary practice, starting as a volunteer in a small animal clinic. Since then he has held positions as a veterinary assistant, receptionist, and technician, all of which he feels have made him a more well-rounded veterinarian. Dr. Ervin enjoys the variety of work involved in general practice medicine and appreciates the opportunity to get to know and care for his patients whether they are in need of medical treatment or a routine check-up.
Dr. Ervin and his fiancée Rachel relocated from San Diego to St. Louis in 2022, after Rachel accepted a job as a veterinarian at the Saint Louis Zoo. They currently share their home with one cat named Jiji, and two chinchillas named Pichu and Momo. As the former lead guitarist in a heavy metal band in Los Angeles, Dr. Ervin continues to hone his skills at home, but hopes to one day take to the stage again in his spare time!
