Front Desk/ Receptionist
Erin Connors was born and raised in Buffalo, New York surrounded by the love of family and friends. Growing up in a home that encouraged health, deep relationships and care towards others, Erin was inspired to serve those around her at a young age. Nutrition and staying active were promoted in her family and still are a big focus today, from taking regular bike rides and walks to making meals together. Erin has always had a profound love for music and the arts and can often be seen at concerts, festivals, and museums.
After graduating high school, Erin's love of travel, new places and new friends lead her to Indiana where she attended college. She graduated from Taylor University in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Spanish. After earning her degree, she moved to Kankakee, IL where she worked as a secretary and care tech at Riverside Medical Center's Rehabilitation Services department for four years. As a secretary she honed skills in patient care, electronic medical records, insurance verification, and customer service. It was during this time that her love for working with patients grew and she was motivated to further advance her career in healthcare.
Always being fascinated by psychology and mental health, Erin earned her Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Olivet Nazarene University. After completing her degree she moved to Chicago where she was eager to find a new healthcare role in an environment that offered more than traditional medicine. Her experience in healthcare as well as her training as a professional counselor has uniquely prepared Erin to be a member of the Raby team. She is very excited to be starting a career at the Raby Institute and looks forward to learning more about integrative medicine and incorporating that into her own life.
"Dr. Raby's approach to patient care is advanced far beyond that of other physicians. She has a softened, holistic approach to healing. She is caring, takes her time with patients and incorporates the spiritual aspects, which is a very important part of healing."
