About Us Berkeley's Story Our Core Team Our Volunteers

Eric brings a strong public relations and communications background to our Board, working most recently at the airport. His vision for Berkeley’s includes a more robust stakeholder relations program, both with organizations we support and potential sponsors/donors.

He has been an avid supporter of multiple local rescues, donating time and resources. He and his partner have fostered more than a dozen dogs through CaliCan, one special girl for over six months due to medical issues. Like so many others who are involved in rescues, he foster failed his mixed small-breed Lily a few years ago, on the first day of fostering!

There’s nothing Eric loves more than his rescue dog Lily, much to the disappointment of his fiancée. But it’s okay, she loves Lily more than him too!

Growing up, Eric had a number of pets – fish, cats, dogs – and truly believes that everyone’s life can be improved by an animal’s love.

A big part of what drew him to volunteering with Berkeley’s is the way the organization supports all the groups that are responsible for saving so many animal lives. Without Berkeley’s many of these groups wouldn’t have the resources needed (education, supplies, etc.) to keep doing what they do.
