Erin covers everything from daily stories to human-interest features and long-term projects. You’ll find her writing about everything from dinosaur bone thieves to corrupt funeral homes, or the separation of church and school to runaway pet snakes. She also has been the Daily Sentinel’s Home & Garden columnist since 2012. Her award-winning work has been recognized by the Colorado Press Association, Society of Professional Journalists, Colorado Broadcast Association and Garden Writers Association.
Erin graduated from Colorado Mesa University (then Mesa State College!), where she earned a bachelor’s degree in mass communications and a minor in political science.
Erin is a Grand Valley native who never felt the need to leave this beautiful place. She comes from a long line of Coloradans and is proud to say she grew up on a farm in Fruita, home of Mike the Headless Chicken. She’s gained a lot of life experience here - working as everything from a radio news reporter to an elementary school teacher and small-business owner. But reporting is her absolute favorite job in the world.
She lives with her husband, dog and chickens and enjoys hiking, traveling and cooking.
