Erin has three terrific passions: people, dogs and the environment. How does she help people? Let me count the ways!
Erin volunteers at school events, with Care and Share, and is the social media representative for the Colorado Springs chapter of “March for our Lives,” a nation-wide student led organization whose mission is to “harness the power of young people across the country to fight for sensible gun violence prevention policies that save lives.”
She has also been offered two part time jobs that started as volunteer positions. Erin began as a volunteer for the “Falfins” swim team, teaching swim lessons to beginner level kids until they are skilled enough to join the swim club as year-round swimmers. After just one year of volunteering in this role, Erin was asked to join as a part-time employee and has worked for them for two years.
In another volunteer position, at the Colorado Springs Therapy Center, after just two months of volunteer work, she was asked to become an employee. Here, Erin helps children and young adults as an assistant during their Aquatic Speech Sessions.
Erin is super passionate about dogs and protecting the environment. She has two rescue dogs, Gabby and Tiki, and is very active with social movements concerning climate change and protecting our planet.
As a senior at Rampart, Erin is in the International Baccalaureate program and National Honor Society. After graduation she plans to go to college to study speech and language pathology.
