Erin founded Careers for Social Impact in 2014 and has been loving her work ever since. Prior to going out on her own she spent 15 years in recruitment and talent roles for a diverse set of organizations across the private, public, and nonprofit sectors, from Google to the U.S. State Department. She especially loves using this experience to help professionals who are interested in transitioning between sectors translate their experience.

Erin is based in Brooklyn, New York. She loves to travel and has visited 30+ countries. She loves exploring NYC with her husband and two young kids. Once they’re older, she can’t wait to show them the world.
