She and her husband are (finally!) empty-nesters, and live in Beckley, West Virginia. She has five children and five grandchildren (and counting!).
Erin was born in Massachusetts but was quickly – at two weeks old – returned to the mountains of West Virginia. Raised in Moundsville and Beckley, she is highly gifted in mathematics and was educated at Harding University in Arkansas where she earned a business degree. Currently she is currently working in radio marketing. She is a wonderful advocate for many causes, not just suicide prevention, but stopping human trafficking, promoting mental wellness, and combating the problems that often affect teen girls in our society: body image, cutting, anorexia and bulimia. She has taken her message of hope into schools, colleges, church camps and retreats, and church youth groups.
