Front Office Coordinator – Erin Ortiz
I graduated from Western New Mexico University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Chemical Dependency. I began working for Dr. Stevens in 2016 and it is my privilege and pleasure to be the first person to welcome and greet patients when they become part of Dr. Stevens’ practice. I enjoy making patients a priority and meeting their needs when it comes to scheduling and getting their questions or concerns answered. In my spare time I enjoy a range of outdoor activities such as hiking, exercising and fishing. I love to travel and spend time with my loved ones.
