Piia Erkkilä

I am one of the two founders of Luotsari Oy. I have a Bachelor of Social Services degree (YAMK), have trained as both a neuropsychiatric coach and an animal-assisting coach. I have also passed preparatory studies of family therapy in social pedagogy and psychotherapy in a university of applied sciences. I have worked at a day-care centre and a parish, and as a social counsellor in a JOPO (flexible basic education) class in the child-protection field, a family social worker, an intense family social worker, as a counsellor at a juvenile home, and as a supervising counsellor.

My hobbies and interests include service dogs (especially searching and rescuing humans), reading, baking, gardening, and floorball.
