Eric Herman has lived in Hamburg most of his life and graduated from Hamburg High School in 1996. Eric and his wife, Laura, both enjoyed growing up in the Village of Hamburg and loved the feeling of community there so decided to raise their 3 children, Tyler, Ella, and Garrett in the same community. Eric graduated from SUNY at Buffalo in 2000 and began working for Buffalo Rehab Group Physical Therapy in 2002.
As a lifelong hockey player, Eric suffered injuries in high school which required PT to return to athletics. All of those experiences sparked his interest in the profession. Eric played hockey all 4 years of college and continues to play today. Currently, Eric spends more of his free time coaching and volunteering with local hockey organizations than playing himself. Eric is a lover of all athletics, so following graduation from UB in 2000, he spent the first year of his career volunteering his time rehabbing the D1 athletes (in all sports) in the training room at UB. Since then Eric has created and delivered various community programming for high school and club athletics in a variety of sports, that focus on athletic performance and preventing injury. This programming has utilized DorsaVi for performance assessment and our KneeSmart and SkateSmart dynamic warmups along with strength and conditioning programs for ice hockey, soccer, lacrosse, basketball, baseball, and softball teams.
Eric has been serving as the Chief Quality Officer for BRG since 2017 and heads our company’s clinician skills development and strategy to create an environment for lifelong learning of our Team. This is to ensure our company’s vision of providing Exceptional Results and Extraordinary Experience for every individual patient.
Outside of work and sports, Eric and his family are outdoor enthusiasts and spend their vacation time in the mountains of the Adirondacks and visits to US National Parks where a hike can break out at any moment. Also, lovers of theatre and the arts, Eric and his family have season tickets to Shea’s and will attend various community arts events and high school musical productions every year.
