About Dr. Eeks, MD, MPH

Erin Stair, affectionately known as Dr. Eeks , is a curious soul passionate about promoting natural health & wellness, with a passion for empowering individuals to take charge of their health and live happier lives.  She has a fondness for blogging about her health and wellness adventures while having a natural love for irreverent, blue-collar comedy. Since she thinks laughing is a huge part of healing, she’ll often post funny stories and tidbits about her life, or anyone’s life she feels like writing about.

Her life in a nutshell: Grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania called Trucksville, where there are more cows than people (And I liked it that way.) My favorite hobby was running and hiding in the cornstalks– and stealing them when it was time to decorate the house for Halloween. She was her high school valedictorian. (No, she wasn’t the only non-cow in her high school.) She was recruited to play soccer at West Point, the U.S. Military Academy & somehow graduated with a dual degree in chemistry and environmental engineering. She started as a nonconformist and graduated as a nonconformist, so even the US Army and years of hazing failed at changing her. After learning how to kill people, she felt a karmic imbalance. To correct that, she enrolled in Drexel University College of Medicine and AUA to learn how to save people. Realizing that people needed to do more for themselves before they ended up with chronic health issues in the hospital, she went on to earn a Masters of Public Health from New York University’s School of Public Health, as part of the Global Health Leadership Program. Let it be known that she would have become a rock star, but her mom always told her it was “Medicine or McDonalds.” There was no in between. That said, her two older sisters are also doctors, and her dad is a veterinarian.

She’s a certified NIA instructor & Laughter Yoga leader. ( And 89% of people have no idea what those things are, but they are tremendously fun and healthy activities.) She practices Krav Maga, runs, plays soccer, swims, bikes, and plays the violin when her neighbors don’t yell at her. She’s left-handed, pigeon-toed and sometimes thinks backwards.

About Barnaby: Barnaby is her Golden Doodle pup who has become the official mascot of the Blooming Wellness Blog. He’s also NYC’s sidewalk therapy dog, because he is ridiculously friendly and runs around cheering people up. He is often seen with Eeks romping around NYC, charming the ladies…, charming the men…and eating everything in sight. I mean everything. He is ridiculously cute and knows it.
