Erin holds a Master of Social Work from Arizona State University and brings with her 15 years of leadership and consulting experience in mental health response, crisis intervention, and advocacy.

In 2013, Erin authored and published her book, Beautifully Bipolar: An Inspiring Look Into Mental Illness, and began her career in mental health advocacy and motivational speaking.

She has facilitated training in prisons, psychiatric hospitals, police headquarters, military bases, and crisis shelters for over 47,000 people around the country. Erin is a Nationally Certified Instructor for both Adult/Youth Mental Health First Aid and QPR Gatekeeper Suicide Prevention.
