As the director for NYSERDA’s Clean Energy Hub for the North Country Region, Erin works to connect residents and small businesses with clean energy opportunities. Erin joined ANCA in 2022 with a diverse background of experience in education, climate change, and project management.
Born and raised in Redford, N.Y., Erin earned bachelor’s degrees in Environmental Studies and Religious Studies from St. Lawrence University, and a master’s degree in Environmental Management from Western Colorado University. Erin’s career path has taken her through incredible ecosystems and communities across the United States. She has taught children about shorebirds on the Oregon Coast, led high school trail crews in National Parks across the country, and helped create an in-school environmental education program in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Erin’s journey eventually brought her back to the Adirondacks where she has held positions at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry and The Wild Center. The undercurrent driving all of Erin’s work is the unwavering belief that there is a place for everyone in the climate movement, and that we will not successfully address the climate crisis without everyone’s contributions.
Erin now resides in Saranac Lake with her husband, and can frequently be found on a bicycle, on a mountain, coasting along on a pair of skis, or in her garden.
