Erin graduated cum laude and holds a BA in English Language & Literature from Tulane University. As a student at Tulane, she was involved in leadership at the Newcomb Institute as the Co-President of the online magazine for collegiate women, Her Campus Tulane. Erin was also a Newcomb Grant Recipient, which provided her the opportunity to intern with Blue State Digital, a digital strategy and technology firm in Washington, D.C. Through this internship, she worked closely alongside nonprofit organizations including the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
After graduation, Erin relocated to San Francisco and has been working in the technology sector at Yelp. She has continued to stay connected to the Tulane community as an Alumni Interviewer in the Bay Area. Erin is passionate about creating pathways for the advancement of women in technology and also serves as a volunteer for the organization 81cents, a company that is working to close the pay gap between men and women. As of 2020, Erin has returned to Newcomb as an NAA Board Member and sees this opportunity as, "a way to continue to shape the development of women and minority groups in the education space. The Newcomb Institute is groundbreaking in its approach to education and leadership. My commitment to Newcomb is to repay the opportunities presented to me as a student and to ensure a pathway forward for our future leaders."
