As the leader of the Campbell CLC, Erin advocates for youth, families, and the neighborhood in and around the north-central Lincoln school. She also oversees staff and direct-service programs related to after-school and community programs that serve Campbell youth and families.

“It’s been great to get to know the students, staff, and parents who make up the Campbell community. This truly is a special place, and I’m beyond thrilled to be here to help build strong communities for our youth,” she said.

Erin grew up in Lincoln and spent much of her time involved in local theater. She lived in Chicago for eight years, where she worked in numerous youth-centered roles as well as in the performing arts. She recently completed her master of divinity degree with a focus on women’s and children’s health. Erin brings extensive experience working with youth in after-school, summer, and STEAM programs designed to empower youth.

In her free time, you can find Erin at home with her cats, Simone and JoJo, most likely with a good book. She also enjoys thrifting and salsa dancing.

“I believe in empathy, justice, teamwork, and the important role that the community plays in the development of our youth, and I can’t wait to help take our CLC to new heights,” she said.
