Erin is highly motivated to encourage entrepreneurs to realize their success through initiating plans and moving projects forward. A stellar organizer, Erin helps our clients reduce stress and optimize productivity by building and organizing business-office systems.

She knows first-hand the highs and lows of operating a small business, as she founded her own independent consulting business in 2009. During that time, she partnered with Collaboration before taking the plunge to become one of our own in order to better serve her clients.

Erin shines when she is training entrepreneurs in financial and accounting basics, customer service and communication best practices, and leadership development. But she doesn’t stop there. Erin is dedicated to capturing the valuable financial data so her clients have the information they need on which to base future decisions.

The best part of Erin’s day is when she can witness her client achieve the “aha moment” — it’s at that point when she knows that the tools she’s provided will help build a sustainable business. Her first and foremost goal is to see her clients reach theirs.

5 Questions For Erin

 

erin1What is your proudest client success and why?
We had the opportunity to work with the owners of a long-standing business that had lost sight of their vision and purpose. After helping them develop their mission, values and five-year vision plan, I witnessed the company’s executives embed this purpose into their culture and every decision. It was amazing to see the positive impact this had on their management team and 90+ employees.

What is your most impactful Collaboration accomplishment?
I love hearing that our work still makes an impact months or years after an engagement ends. When I reconnect with past clients, I feel proud to hear them say “I’m still using that tool!” or “We hit our goal!” I get chills every time to know that Collaboration was a part of their success.

erinWhat is one thing people don’t commonly know about you?
Pumpkin pie is my favorite dessert! I often ask for it instead of a birthday cake. The only problem is my birthday is in May!

What is something personal we should know?
I love spending long weekends camping with friends and family (or as the team calls it: “glam-ping”). We love to take our camper to the beach. Our daughter, my sister and brother-in-law and friends share great food, wine and campfire s’mores!erin2

What is something you are looking forward to in the future?
I’m so happy to be a part of such an amazing team at Collaboration; we’ve come a long way since the start. In the future, I’m looking forward to watching us grow and having the opportunity to positively impact more organizations, leaders and teams.
