Dr. Erin Freye
Dr. Erin Freye started working with the Elk Rapids and Suttons Bay Animal Hospitals in April of 2019. Dr. Freye graduated from MSU’s veterinary school and, also has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan. She has a cat of her own, named Freddie and started working with animals long before attending vet school, spending time with mixed animals and a dairy practitioner. We asked her what her favorite part of working with animals is and she responded, “working with their owners to create a team approach towards improving the health of not only individual animals but on a larger scale at a population level, that impacts the entire community.” When Dr. Freye is not helping others with their pets, she enjoys doing anything outside. She especially likes to explore the hiking and biking trails as well as taking out her kayak on the small lakes and rivers in our area. She completed her first 50k trail run last summer on Grand Island in the Upper Peninsula. Dr. Freye has a twin brother who lives in the Traverse area and an older brother who lives downstate.
