Erin Clifton is a physical therapist at Therapedia, LLC. She enjoys the multi-disciplinary approach to treating patients. She believes that each discipline brings their focus and skill set forward, allowing them to collaborate and learn from each other how to best help each individual child. She really enjoys that the employees of Therapedia truly like each other and are friends, inside and outside the clinic.
As a child, Erin enjoyed reading Junie B. Jones books and wanted to be a meteorologist or veterinarian. She grew up in Raleigh, NC and attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she majored in biology and chemistry. She is married to a retired Marine, Scott and spent 21 years as a military spouse with frequent moves and deployments. While being tremendously challenging at times, she met some of the best people in her life with the Marine Corps and while it was technically her husband’s job, she says that being a Marine spouse helped her grow as a person. The multiple moves provided the opportunity to work in many different settings of physical therapy including ECI, acute care, orthopedics and long-term care. Erin and Scott have two children, 20 and 17 years old.
Erin characterizes herself as reserved, witty and meticulous. When asked to reveal her hidden talents she stated that she had none but is an incredible procrastinator. In her spare time, she likes to cook, read, travel and try new restaurants. She also enjoys walking her dogs and hanging out with friends. Watching her son play sports, especially hockey is a great joy. She loves watching the Carolina Hurricanes play hockey and she continues to be a loyal fan despite many losing seasons. Erin’s favorite quote is, “Bloom where you are planted”
