Imagine experiencing Ocracoke for the first time with a medical degree and a 10-month-old daughter, arriving to interview for the sole doctor position at the Ocracoke Health Center.

That is what Dr. Erin Baker did 12 years ago, fresh from completing her medical school and residency training in general family medicine.

What brought her here?

Baker wanted to be closer to her family who had moved to Manteo (about two and a half hours from the island).

Now it is time again for her to be even closer to her mother and move to Manteo and join the Outer Banks Family Medical Practice.
