- Former LBBC staff writer and content coordinator
Erin served as author of select LBBC publications and coordinated publication reprints, photo shoots, and our Ask-the-Expert program in support of the mission, programs, and services of LBBC.

"Whether through interviewing them for an article in our quarterly newsletter, Insight, or recruiting them to take part in one of our photo shoots, I’ve had the privilege to work directly with many of the people who rely on LBBC for emotional and informational support. Knowing that LBBC has helped them get through one of their most difficult life experiences inspires me every day."
