Real Talk

Erin’s career spans all aspects of media, marketing, communications, public relations, journalism, television, celebrity styling and more. When she’s not writing and speaking about dating, she’s the VP of Marketing for a large healthcare company.

No matter how much she’s killed it in other areas, Erin’s dating life hasn’t exactly gone to plan. Never did she think she’d be 39 and single – never engaged or married and without kids.

Armed with an endless amount of laugh-out-loud stories, Erin couples her quick wit with depth and vulnerability to help audiences feel seen and understood. She says what everyone thinks but is too embarrassed to say.

As a speaker, Erin’s delivery is honest, frank, relatable, easy-to-understand and straight to the point. Her sessions are full of truth-bombs, funny stories, inspiration and actionable items participants can put to use immediately. They’re one part rah-rah-you-can-do-this, and two parts OMG-I’ve-been there-too. Participants will laugh, maybe cry a little, but definitely leave entertained, inspired and feeling like they have a new BFF in Erin.

Erin has a master’s from the University of Cambridge, UK and a bachelor’s from UC Santa Barbara – so she can articulately string a sentence together. But who cares? Her fun, irreverent and inspiring style combined with her master storytelling ability leaves audiences fired up and equipped to act on their inspiration.

No Man’s Land: Thrive on YOUR Terms

What do you do when you wake up and realize your life isn’t going according to the plan you dreamed up in your 20s and that society demands? Sure, you could call your girlfriends and drink allllll the rosé, but there’s a better way.

In this high-energy, engaging and entertaining session, Erin weaves laugh-out-loud dating stories and experiences from her journey with social commentary about how online dating has shifted the way humans interact. She combines simple perspective shifts with actionable items so women can start living life on their terms, not their mom’s, friend’s, neighbor’s or Aunt Sue’s.

Single or not, any woman will walk away from this session inspired and ready to start living her best life today.


Finding Joy in the Journey

Life is hard. Whether you’re single, married, have kids or not, work or stay home, it’s all hard! It’s just different kinds of hard. Too many women get caught in the trap of comparing themselves to their friends, neighbors, school moms or strangers on the internet and forget that we’re all fighting our own battles on different timelines.

If you’re constantly waiting for something to happen before you’re happy, you’re never going to get there. Have you ever thought, “When I meet a man, when I’m engaged, when I have kids, when my kids are out of school, when I have more money, when I lose 20 pounds…” Fill in the blank. It’s endless.

In this frank and honest session, Erin tells it like it is to help women find the joy in their unique journey. She simultaneously lights a fire under them while encouraging and supporting them with actionable tasks and mindset shifts to see that they are the star of their own show. If you’re looking for someone to bring high energy and humor while arming women with the tools to change their perspective and lives, Erin is your girl.


Confidence is Contagious: Cultivate Confidence to Create Better Leaders and Teams

We’ve all been there – somehow attracted to the guy that is average looking at best, who is a mediocre dresser, in sub-par shape with the ho-hum job. Why do we find this person so attractive? Nine times out of ten, it’s confidence. A confident person is magnetic.

So how do we have what they’re having? We work at it. Yes, some people are born with confidence, but most of us have to cultivate it over time. In this entertaining, insightful and inspiring session, Erin walks participants through her simple, three-step process to develop the confidence to be a rock-star leader and create the team of their dreams. Attendees will leave with actionable items to implement immediately and inspired to be the most confident version of themselves.


5 Steps to Turn Your Pain into Your Purpose

Most of us have experienced something traumatic. Something that shakes us to our core and makes us wonder how we’re going to survive and move forward. From heartache to death, divorce, sickness, miscarriages, infertility, financial struggles, drugs, career failures, family dramas or any number of other things, we’re all dealing with something.

The question is how do you move on? How do you turn that pain into your purpose? In this raw and unfiltered session, Erin dives deep into her own story to share the pain that led her to build a new life with passion and purpose and how you can do the same. Participants will leave with inspiration, hope and a plan to create the life they dream of by harnessing the power of their past and using it for good.
