Erin started her career working for large multinational pharma companies in sales, marketing, and medical affairs roles. With head office experience and field-based assignments, She enjoyed meeting the needs of both internal and external stakeholders.
When the time came to start a family, Erin took an unpaid leave from Eli Lilly. During this time off, she has her employer's approval to pursue small-scale freelance work with medical communications agencies. This was a first step toward self-employment – a career path that would last for more than a decade.
Erin maintained a loyal clientele of biotech, veterinary medicine and public health organizations over the last 5 years. Having finished a Master’s degree in educational technology, right before the pandemic, she was in the right place at the right time to help clients convert training and coaching initiatives to every virtual platform imaginable.
