About the Elizabeth Institute

Meet Co-Founders, Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Margo Herron and her husband Eric Herron, and the Elizabeth Institute team. 

The Elizabeth Institute was founded by reconstructive and cosmetic surgeon Margo Herron and her husband Eric. The institute was named in tribute to Dr. Herron’s mother, Mary Elizabeth, a caring and compassionate woman who was deeply involved in philanthropy and community involvement. The Herron’s wish for their practice to be representative of those same characteristics.

When not assisting patients Eric and Margo enjoy spending time outdoors with their son Max and daughter Eve. In particular they love to cycle, hike and take Max on runs through the park and the communities of Ashland.

Erica Campos,
Medical Assistant

Providing nurturing, compassionate, and exceptional care are a few excellent ways to describe the care Erica gives our patients. Her desire is to help patients during these exciting moments of surgery and recovery, feel well taken care of and important. Providing patient education about surgeries, and office procedures is just as important to her in order for patients to have the best experience and best results.

Erica loves cheering on her children’s sports teams and her favorite professional teams with her family. Away from the office you may also find her spending time in Oregon’s beautiful outdoors.

Sasha Goldman,
Front Office Specialist

Sasha’s smiling face is the first thing you notice when you enter the office. She is super helpful and will help you get all your questions answered in a timely fashion. She’s a people person and interacting with patients on a day-to-day basis and watching them smile brings her so much joy.

Sasha was born in California but grew up in Southern Oregon and considers herself an Oregon girl. She grew up struggling with acne, so from an early age she knew she wanted to do something involving skin as a career. She’s a licensed esthetician and has a passion for helping people find a skin care regimen that works for them.

Traveling is one of her favorite things to do and she loves to go to any place that’s hot where she can lay by a pool, especially Mexico. When she’s not at work, she is usually with her family and friends spending quality time together or just relaxing watching a good movie.
