Surgical Center Team
Erin Vernon, R.N., Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) Nurse
Erin graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. While at SPU, she was given the opportunity to complete her Senior Internship in the Intensive Care Unit.
After graduation and with the help of the internship, Erin was accepted into an RN position in Critical Care—rare for a new graduate! She has since worked in the ICU/CCU setting for more than seven years and gained a CCRN (Critical Care RN) certification along with valuable skills caring for the sickest patients and supporting their families.
With a growing family of her own, Erin recently made the change to join the team at Larrabee Center in order to work part-time and continue to use her critical thinking skills (that’s a nursing joke) to make the recovery process a smooth one for surgical patients.
Kendi Locknane, R.N. Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) Nurse
Kendi Locknane graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1993. Kendi has a wealth of experience which includes working in the operating room, intensive care unit, and in the post-anesthesia care unit.
Kendi has been a part of the Larrabee Center team since 2001 and has had the privilege of traveling to China with Dr. Larrabee for a Smile China cleft lip and palate medical mission.
Kendi and her husband Tim live in Bothell and are raising four beautiful children.
We have an awesome OR team and this is the “tall and short” of it – Shanna and Kendi!
