Erin Sasser

EMT Instructor

A native of Wilmington, N.C., Erin Sasser is a seven-year veteran of the Novant-New
Hanover emergency medical services team, and an EMT instructor at The National
Center for Outdoor & Adventure Education (NCOAE) since 2022.

Erin joined NCOAE for the opportunity to teach emergency medicine to students from
all over the country. She is most interested in how these students plan to use their
certification when the course is complete.

She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology in 2011 from Appalachian State
University, and her Associate of Science Degree in Emergency Medical Services from
Asheville-Buncombe Tech four years later. Erin also holds membership in the National
Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).

She has been married to husband Phillip for the past three years, and the couple has a
Labrador Retriever named Hazel and a cat named Prudence. Her hobbies include reading,
vegetable gardening, and movie marathons — most involving Harry Potter and the Lord
of the Rings.
