hey, I'm Erin
In 2016, I watched as breast cancer took everything from my mom, including her life, like a thief in the night. She was 53. I was 29. My brother and sisters were 9, 12 and 14.
On august 6, 2019, six weeks after my wedding, I got the phone call that my big brother, my daughter's godfather, had been taken from this earth from a sudden cardiac event. He was 48. He left behind a wife, and two babies, now 11 and 9. We were supposed to them in a few days.
My already existing mental health issues of depression and anxiety roared up like the flames from hell - with grief as the gas on the fire.
I am mostly known for my ability to open myself to others to listen and offer support without judgement. People often refer to me as the true empath - to a fault at times.
I always joke and tell my husband the reason I have been through so much is so that I can be strong and carry heavy things for those who need a break.
I create products for people like me who are yearning for more efficient routines and better habits in order to make room for their grief and pain.
I create community for people like me who feel incredibly lonely, even in a room full of people.
I create tools and blueprints for people like me, who know that everything has changed, the life they thought they were going to have is no more and their dreams need to be redefined.
I offer coaching for people like me whose aspirations and deep sense of calling changed amidst devastating loss and are searching to find true purpose in the pain.
I lend an ear, empathy and an open heart for anyone who carries a heavy weight or burden.
I'm probably at the ball field being the stepmom, mom and coach's wife, folding laundry while listening to my favorite podcast and mentally noting the ways I can share my story to serve and elevate those who are living with loss, grief, pain or mental illness.
1. I am 10 years younger than my husband. (I call him my silver fox - all the McDreamy vibes).
2. I am a crazy cat lady - we have 3 kittens.
3. I am terrified of spiders, heights and holey textures (Trypophobia) and will likely cease to exist if faced with any of these.
4. I am in recovery for a binge eating disorder.
5. It is my literal dream to go to Hogwarts.
can't live without
helping you find
that hustle game
Turn your wounds into wisdom.”
