Erin joined the team in 2017 when she moved back to her home town of Coffs Harbour and set up our workshop on the Coffs Coast. Erin started her P & O journey while on a sporting scholarship in the USA where she completed an Undergraduate in Biomedical Engineering with a focus in prosthetics. She then returned to Australia to continue her education and graduated from Latrobe University with a Masters in Clinical Prosthetics and Orthotics in 2013. Erin gained experience in Sydney and brings all that knowledge with her as well as the attitude to continually improve client outcomes and experiences.

It was Erin’s interest in the outdoors, particularly surfing, that first enticed her back to her home town. But it was high in the Nepalese mountains volunteering for Prosthetics without Borders, that NP owner Peter Farrand enlisted her to set up Coffs Harbour’s first local Prosthetics and Orthotics workshop under the Northern Prosthetics banner.

Erin thrives on being part of the tight knit community and being able to provide a professional specialist service to the region she grew up in. After moving away from the city, she understands the need to balance lifestyle and work commitments so if you can’t find her in the workshop, have a look in the waves.
