Professionally, Erin achieved being the youngest president in the history of the Tallahassee Bar Association and only the ninth woman to hold that office. On a personal front, she cherishes being a mother to two wonderful children and attaining the status of a partner at her law firm even while on maternity leave.

Erin’s professional motto is “If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it.”

When we asked Erin what advice she would give herself if she could go back to the start of her Law career, she said, “There is a difference between giving up and moving on. If something isn’t serving you anymore, don’t be afraid to admit it and make a change.”
