  Horses have always been an important part of Dr. Erskine's life.  He was  involved in 4-H, Pony Club, and his family bred and showed Quarter Horses.  He worked on breeding and training farms when he was young and became interested in pursuing a career in veterinary medicine at an early age. 

Dr. Erskine majored in Biology as an undergraduate at Virginia Tech.  He then attended the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech and graduated in 1988.

Dr. Erskine was elected Vice President of ABVP at the annual symposium held in Denver, Colorado in April, 2010.  On July 1, 2011, Dr. Erskine became President-elect of ABVP.
