Dr. Lynn Erdman is a Wisconsin native who completed her undergraduate degree in Zoology. From there, she attended Iowa State University for a Masters in parasitology and research in the Pathology Department before entering veterinary school.
Together with her late husband, Dr. Tim Girsch, they first practiced in Montana (Tim was an avid fly fisherman, and Montana is Ground Zero). After thawing from -56 degree winters, they arrived in Portland when Tim took a position with Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital.
Lynn has practiced both on the West Side and in Lake Oswego. She practices gonzo gardening, finds time to help in conservation projects, and wishes she could learn how to play the ukulele.
