As Director of Consulting Services, Erin leads and supports custom consulting projects for Center clients. She regularly conducts Risk Assessments and Enterprise Risk Assessments, and she coaches nonprofit Risk Champions on internal risk assessment and risk reporting techniques. Erin also delivers in-person and online training, and develops risk education materials that make ‘risk’ more empowering than scary, such as infographics, whiteboard animation videos, and custom webinars.
Erin is especially drawn to supporting nonprofits and NGOs focused on human/environmental health and human rights. Erin earned a Master of Public Health (MPH) and an international development certificate at Virginia Tech. Erin previously conducted community development research in the Dominican Republic, and graduate fieldwork with a regional arm of the Virginia Department of Health. Erin also enjoyed teaching public speaking classes at Virginia Tech, where she previously earned a B.A. in Communication.
Aside from pursuing her professional goals, Erin seeks out learning and adventure in her personal life—with her dog Hugo at her side. Erin loves to play frisbee, paint, cook, go camping, and mark off items on her bucket list. So far she has skydived, spray painted a mural in Paris, spotted a mountain goat in the Swiss Alps, and even danced in Trinidad & Tobago’s 2013 Carnival. Erin aspires to continue taking bold risks that offer her a big ROI, such as learning Spanish, eating street food all over the world, adopting a child, and helping great nonprofits achieve their missions.
