About Erin

Hello! My name is Erin and I am looking forward to working with you. I was an English major in school with a theater minor. I was a rare student who adored writing papers and doing research! I have a pretty varied amount of life experience. I was a Health and Community Development Volunteer with the U.S. Peace Corps in the Republic of Kiribati in the South Pacific. I wrote several successful grants to the Australian Rotary Club and the Fijian government. After returning, I worked as a teacher's aide in Rockton, IL. Upon moving to Chicago to study at The Second City, I got a job as a nanny where I remained for five years. Recently I got a job as a drama and movement teacher with the Mayer Kaplan J.C.C. in Skokie. I write comedy sketches on a daily basis and love learning. This summer, I worked as a deckhand on the tall ship Red Witch and learned how to sail from the masters. I promise you, we will make this interesting and do quality work. Hello!
