Erin joined Nature Sacred in 2015, and has since created the Nature Sacred Network
, a thriving coalition of Firesouls
who convene, share, learn, and grow from each other. It was from this Network and its collective strength that the potential to scale the organization's outcomes was born.
Inspired by the power of nature to transform individuals and communities, she believes that bonded together, Sacred Places
can have a real impact on a city’s health and prosperity. As Chief Programs Officer, she continues to work to place a spotlight on the way these greenspaces can foster thriving and resilient cities in lasting, meaningful ways.
Prior to joining Nature Sacred, Erin was with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s development department. She also previously served as Legislative Director for the Majority Leader of the Maryland State Senate.
Erin is a graduate of Washington College in Chestertown, MD, and currently resides in Annapolis with her husband and four children. Erin gets her 20 minutes a day of nature by walking with (chasing) her children and golden retriever through the many beautiful parks in Maryland, coaching youth sports, and connecting with Firesouls and communities in Nature Sacred’s vibrant and growing Network of Sacred Places.
