Erin is a lifelong southerner who has enjoyed travel adventures to Africa, Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and Europe, including temporary residences in both Germany and the Netherlands. She got her professional start in the travel industry in 2004, specializing in group trips for missions, disaster relief, and humanitarian aid. She prides herself on creative logistics, for destinations both close and far-flung. She fully believes that encountering new people and places is the best way to connect to each other as neighbors and people of God. When we travel, what once felt foreign can come to feel familiar, making this a smaller, more hopeful and peaceful world. When she isn’t dreaming up trip plans, Erin spends time reading, writing, drinking coffee, singing in choir, and road tripping with her husband and three children.
