Erin grew up in Morgantown and later attended West Virginia University as a Public Relations major, graduating magna cum laude with a BS in Journalism in 2006. While in college, she interned with the WV Small Business Incubator, WV Radio Corporation and at the WV Legislature. Shortly after college, Erin moved to Raleigh, NC where she began her career in government affairs with the NC Home Builders Association (NCHBA), as the manager of political operations. Her experience at the WV Legislature made for an easy transition into her career providing legislative summaries, election updates and managing some of the top Political Action Committees in the state with NCHBA, Nationwide Insurance and Time Warner Cable. Erin became a registered lobbyist while working for Time Warner Cable, later Charter Communications, managing telecommunications and regulatory issues. In 2017, Erin jumped at the opportunity to start a new role in the cable industry with Altice USA and relocated back home to the Mountain State. She is now the Director of Government and Public Affairs managing federal, state and local government relationships in WV, OH, KY, VA and NC. Affectionately referring to herself as “the cable girl”, Erin travels frequently for work and enjoys meeting and helping new people along the way. She and her son live in Teays Valley with their two dogs and enjoy watching movies, stand-up paddleboarding and visiting family members.
