Growing up surrounded by mountains and oceans, music and books, Erin exhibited early signs of the universal compassion and wonderment that would define her life. She discovered the work of Free The Children in 2001 in high school and worked as a youth member and regional network coordinator.
Erin pursued an honours degree in international relations and anthropology at Mount Allison University. She graduated as class valedictorian before joining the Me to We team as a motivational speaker, delivering her unique message of social change with humour and music to over 50,000 youth in North America, and facilitating over 200 youth leadership workshops. With experience facilitating overseas trips for over 600 volunteers, and speaking at various international conferences and events, Erin became the director of leadership programming for Me to We before becoming increasingly drawn to the remote scopes and Saguaro-covered ranges of Southern Arizona's border region. Leading Me to We trips to the Windsong Peace and Leadership Centre for four years, and developing intimate and compassionate relationships with people in Mexico and the United States, Erin soon realized that her soul was wrapped up in the land, the people and the issues unique to that area.
...
Currently pursuing a master's degree in applied community change and conservation as well, Erin constantly seeks to continue the betterment of her work and her life.
Erin finds joy and energy in travel, running, reading, nature treks, playing guitar and laughing. She is buoyed up by the love of her talented and amazing friends and family. When she dreams, Erin sees a just and sustainable community in her desert oasis; a place where people of all ages, races, abilities and genders - from any side of every border - find solutions to the political, social and environmental concerns plaguing their community...all the while feasting on kickin' Mexican food!
