Dr Erin Bukofsky received her Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from Skidmore College in 2007. She gained a variety of experience working with animals after her undergraduate program, including studying koala husbandry in Australia, researching anteater behavior at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington D.C., interning at various wildlife rehabilitation centers, and volunteering at wildlife sanctuaries and pet shelters in Southern California.
Dr Bukofsky 's passion for canine rehabilitation began immediately after starting work as an animal rehabilitation assistant at Dr. Kramer’s first animal rehab clinic in the westside of Los Angeles. She left that facility after two years to pursue her physical therapy degree, earning her Doctorate of Physical Therapy(DPT) from Chapman University in 2017. She then rejoined Dr. Kramer at her new recently opened clinic, Beach Animal Rehabilitation Center, and became a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist (CCRT) shortly thereafter. Dr Bukofsky has also gained further training in manual treatment of the canine spine and pelvis.
In her free time, Dr Erin Bukofsky enjoys reading, relaxing by the beach, hiking along the Southern California coastline, and spending time with her fur baby, Maxwell.
