Erin is a certified registered physician assistant practicing in Colts Neck as the Director of the Mid-level Providers at Advanced Heart and Vascular of Central Jersey. 

Specializing in whole patient wellness, she prevents and treats cardiac illness as well as provides a broad range of care under the supervision of a physician. Her professional goal is to listen to her patients and provide well-explained answers to their questions to the best of her ability, while taking the time to focus on prevention and patient education.  

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Erin moved to Long Island when she was 10 years old and grew up in Massapequa Park. A graduate of Massapequa High School with a Regents diploma, she was a varsity softball player. 

Her grandmother was a nurse which inspired her to have a career in healthcare. After being treated by a physician assistant multiple times as a young girl, her mother encouraged her to follow her desire to become a physician assistant. Erin graduated from King’s College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania with a Bachelor’s Degree in Medical Studies and a Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant Studies with minors in Healthcare Administration and Neuroscience.

PAs are trained to take medical histories, perform physical examinations, order and interpret laboratory tests, diagnose illness, develop and manage treatment plans, prescribe medications, and assist in surgery.

Happily married, Erin and her soulmate and husband, Dr. Pete Farrugia, have been blessed with four active children. 

Outside of the office, Erin’s favorite thing is spending time with her husband and children. She also enjoys many volunteer opportunities in the community, including Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore, and is an avid animal lover. 

Her hobbies include sports, as she is a softball player and devoted Mets fan, and she loves horseback riding, cooking, traveling, and ballroom dancing. Her favorite place to vacation is any place warm.
