∴ ABOUT ∴
Thank you for visiting my little corner of the universe. I am an artist, designer, and life coach with unbridled wanderlust that fuels my travels around the globe in search of beauty. (And boy does our earth deliver beauty in spades!)
My art is influenced by elements of nature, a spirit of play and a rich life fully lived — the shadow and the light side. Life has been my best teacher, and even through the toughest of circumstances I’ve stayed anchored in its deeper lessons. Challenges serve to hone brilliant, beautiful lives — mine included. Shadow years truly do build superpowers, and creativity has the power to heal ourselves and others.
I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia, and honed my marketing chops during a decade long stint at Microsoft. I learned the art of coaching from the brilliant beings at the CoachVille Center for Coaching Mastery, and through Martha Beck’s Wayfinder Life Coach Training.
I’m a lifelong learner, and you’ll often find me saddled up next to some bright human exploring magnificent facets of life and human nature, or curled up under the softest of blankets with an insightful read. Guiltless pleasures include walks in the woods, documentaries, spontaneous play, and all the dark chocolate my heart desires.
∴ COACHING ∴
S even years ago I was lost in an unfulfilling corporate job, feeling creatively stifled and wholly unfulfilled. I’d been an artist as long as I could remember, had gone to art school committed to a path of creative self-expression through sculpture, yet through a chain of seemingly chance events I ended up in a marketing job at one of the largest corporations on the planet for nearly a decade. I woke up more days than I care to admit asking, “Who are you, and what did you do with Erin?”
Long story short I connected with a powerful coach who showed me not only that other paths were possible, but that a path of my own choosing in alignment to those things I held most dear was possible. My dream was calling me forward, and I chose to say yes to the adventure! Thus began my journey back to self, and to the wild, creative life I now wake up and love every day.
We are all born with brilliant, innate superpowers and a dream in our heart to do amazing things in the world. Our life experiences can influence how we express or suppress those superpowers in pursuit of our dreams. Coaching is an opportunity to get clear on your heart’s dream, to honor your wisdom by tapping in to your strengths and capabilities, to unwind where your energies get caught in fear you’re pursuing your dream, and to move forward with joy and freedom as you make your dream into reality. All humans and all dreams are varied, and results from coaching are too. Read what some of my amazing clients have said about their coaching experience.
The world is a beautiful playground, and we truly do get to choose our own adventure. Why not make it a fun one? There is no better time than now to get started.

Working with Erin has, no exaggeration, changed my life. I began talking with her once a week at a point when I was going through a major life transition -- leaving my job to pursue a big courageous dream with a lot of moving pieces. With Erin's compassion and perspective, the project became playful. We explored barriers and broke down road blocks holding me back while celebrating every milestone! Three months in I can't imagine I would be where I am without her tools and her kindness. I even recommended two of my dearest friends to her. She's an incredible person and I feel profoundly lucky to have her in my life.
Erin is an absolute joy to work with. Having Erin by my side as a stepped into a scary and challenging marketing project was invaluable. She reminded me to have fun, and to look at it as a game. Countless times she was able to provide unparalleled clarity and guidance that allowed me to perform at my highest levels and be my best creative self. By the end of my project I went from being a marketing newbie to garnishing the attention of high-level entrepreneurs such as Gary Vaynerchuk and Gerard Adams. Ultimately I was awarded an apprenticeship with a multimillionaire, and eventually became the CEO of one of his companies. None of it would've been possible without the wisdom and guidance Erin gave me. If you are about to embark on a new adventure, or take on a new creative project, there is no better coach to have by your side than Erin. She will grab your hand, pull you through tough times, and celebrate with you during the good times. She will inspire the inner creative you had no idea existed. When you are pushing the limits of your abilities and fall upon dark times, you will need someone by your side to help you get back on track. Erin is that coach. What are you waiting for?
I was lucky enough to find Erin at a time in my life when I really needed her expertise and guidance. I was grieving the loss of my father who had died about a month prior and I was completely unfulfilled professionally, even though I was working in a dream job for a booming tech company. None of this deterred Erin! 6 months later, she has guided me to follow my curiosity and turn what once felt like work into play. Erin is truly a master at helping you change your perspective and see that your dream life can be a reality. She is a master of play, a fine teacher in accountability, a wise sage, and now, a dear friend. I'm not sure where I would be without her.
Iwas fortunate to have Erin coach me at a most opportune time. I was struggling to decide whether to concentrate on one particular option, or to split my energies and continue with a different yet practical suggestion at the same time. I found myself indecisive, hesitating and procrastinating. Erin's quiet and considered approach was immensely helpful. The ability to connect closely over the phone is not a gift everyone has, yet Erin is a master at it. Her ability to grasp a situation and reflect back her understanding empathically was reassuring and supportive. Her process is simple and effective, and I was able to move quickly through my challenges, seeing progress at each stage. I was able to move forward feeling lighter and more confident in what my next steps needed to be.
Coaching with Erin was a joy! Framing my life as a game helped me see the steps needed to embrace my superpowers and start moving towards greater purpose and meaning in my world. She held space for me to process and move through challenging situations and helped spur more creative exploration as a vehicle for processing the changes I was experiencing in my life. Erin's enthusiasm, spirit of play, and keen observational skills will help you get your GAME ON!
Erin was incredible at coaching me toward my life goals. I had a lofty project in mind and Erin was an empathic listener who never suggested my goal was too ridiculous or too big. Whenever I felt stuck and overwhelmed, or didn't know what to do next, she would offer some poignant insight that would help me move forward. I got farther than I ever thought possible to achieving one of my life dreams and I have Erin to thank for it!
I'll put it simply, working with Erin was game changing! As someone who lives in my head, being able to share my thoughts with someone who would listen, reflect, and make suggestions was a welcome change. Since working with Erin I've more fully realized the value that comes from talking freely to get an outside perspective. Erin is a pro at what she does, and I HIGHLY recommend working with her! The investment is totally worth it.
Erin is a caring and intuitive coach that I would recommend to anyone that is looking for a gentle boost in life or business. I worked with Erin on making progress on a business project. During our time together Erin helped me get my thoughts out of my head and into action. I was able to get clarity on my strengths so I can use my time in ways that are in better alignment with my natural abilities. In a short period of time I made far more progress working with Erin than I would have on my own.
