About Erin

Erin got her start in the Financial Services industry right out of college, falling in love after her first Finance class. She has over 19 years of experience, in positions ranging from client service, to management, to back office of operations and compliance, which provides her with a well-rounded array of competencies that serve clients well. 

Erin has a degree in Finance from UNC-Charlotte where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with Honors in Business. In her junior year, she was the recipient of the Glenn Whaley Memorial Scholarship for finance, an accolade she is still honored to have received. 

She and her husband, Adrian, live in a suburb south of Charlotte with their two dogs, Blu Belle and Josie. They do not have children of their own, but she loves spending time with her two young nephews, and niece. In addition to spending time with family, she also enjoys watching movies, reading (and listening to) fiction, and crafting.
