Erin has proudly supported the military and their families for the past decade.
She is a military spouse and left her career in journalism when her husband joined the U.S. Navy. Like many military spouses, Erin found it challenging to maintain her career because of frequent moves, but launched a new career path after volunteering with the Wounded, Injured, and Ill at Naval Medical Center San Diego.
Since then, Erin has enjoyed working for several non-profits that support the military and their families. After three deployments, two kids, and several PCS moves, she is now a member of the HOPE family.
As the Senior Director for Transition, Erin oversees the suite of transition programs and services offered by HOPE. Programs include employment support, spouse and caregiver scholarships, and Transition Critical Support, which fills gaps in that many service members experience during their transition from military to civilian life.
Additionally, Erin provides guidance and oversight for two unique and impactful HOPE programs — A Warrior’s Wish® and the Drive For Hope Driving Rehabilitation Program. These programs help restore self, family and hope through our national transition services, virtual capabilities and partners in mission.
Erin also stays busy shuttling her two boys to and from activities. She loves to play guitar with her oldest son and baseball with her youngest. Travel is always on her agenda, and discovering new places is often the best way to spend a carefree weekend.
