Hello! My name is Mariah and I am very excited to be working in the clinic with Dr. Erickson, Judy, and all of their patients. I have been a medical assistant and phlebotomist for 3 years, working in multiple specialties including primary care, pain management, and orthopedic surgery. I have also worked in donation phlebotomy, and have drawn blood on over 6,000 people! I have a passion for what I do and caring for others. A little bit about me is that I have 3 cats who I am obsessed with, I love bees, and my favorite color is pink. I can’t wait to continue to meet everyone and grow in my knowledge of medicine.
