Hi I'm Erin!


Let's do some cool things together.

Hi I'm Erin!


Let's do some cool things together.

I think content in all its forms has a lot of power to spread ideas, build communities, and engage and delight people—but you have to know how to do it right. And, in today’s world, you have to keep innovating in order to keep getting it right. That’s why I’m here. I currently put my skills to use at The Muse, where I am building our Branded Content Strategy, figuring out how we can work with amazing partners to keep elevating the career content that's on the web. 

I’m always on the lookout for freelance opportunities, speaking engagements, other projects—or just to grab a cup of coffee with someone interesting. Read on to learn about my professional past, and if you have a way you think we could work together, I'd love to hear from you!

Thoughts on My Work

I’ve worked with a lot of editors and internship supervisors, and Erin is undoubtedly one of the best. I’m so grateful for Erin’s mentorship. She’s incredibly open to answering questions, even if they have nothing to do with my work for her. I’ve learned so much about professionalism, career paths, and even ethics from Erin.
— Former Intern
[Erin] is an exceptional editor; her standards are exacting, and she always gives constructive feedback. She is not afraid to tell you when she thinks you can improve a part of your article (and she’s always right), yet she knows how to push you in the right way so that you stay motivated. Anyone who gets to have Erin as an editor is extremely lucky!
