After completing her Bachelor's Degree at the College of St. Scholastica, Erin opted to move back to her "home on the Range" where she came to find her position with the United Way in October of 2004. She has been able to fulfill her passion for working with people whether it is meeting with area employees to talk about the good things United Way does, planning a United Way event, or working on the ever-growing list of community impact initiatives the United Way coordinates. "It's amazing to me the amount of people I've been able to meet through United Way," she said. "I love going out and being able to tell them the unbelievable impact their donation is making on families and individuals right here in our communities." When Erin isn't at work, her favorite place to be is at home with her family. Together, they keep busy playing, cooking, and gardening. In addition Erin enjoys anything outdoors that keeps her active, and she recently took up the sport of deer hunting.
