Born on the West Coast but raised in the East, Erin studied microbiology and social anthropology in her undergrad before pursuing a law degree from Dalhousie University. Following several formative years at a boutique litigation firm in Toronto, Erin felt the call of the East and returned to her home. Looking to shift her focus to working with both communities and the environment, Erin completed her graduate degree in Resource and Environmental Management in 2011. Since then she has been privileged to work in the non-profit environmental sector on everything from energy efficiency to habitat restoration, plastic waste reduction and low carbon transportation alternatives. An advocate of a healthy living and community engagement, Erin is also a part-time fitness instructor, Girl Guide leader and member of the Board of the Back to the Sea Society.
