Erin Betancourt, one of our Vision Therapists, was born and raised in Yakima. After graduating from A.C. Davis High School she moved to British Columbia, Canada, to attend Trinity Western University. Erin graduated with a BA in Intercultural Religious Studies – concentrating in inner city missions – and a minor in Political Science. Over the last 16 years Erin has worked with children in youth both professionally (mental/behavioral health services; preschool teacher) and volunteering (student ministries, mission trips to the Yakama Nation, Camp Ghormley, etc.). Her experience in working with children, youth, and adults contribute to her work here at WAVTC.
In 2010 Erin married her loving husband, Eferon Betancourt; they enjoy volunteering with the Yakima Fire Department together, and attending Sun Valley Church (where Erin services part-time as the Connection Team Director), and hanging out with friends, family, and their pets.
