Events Team Chair
Erin was born and raised in Corvallis, Oregon before “spending the summer in Maui” after high school eventually leading to 12 years in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. During her time on the rock she photographed and planned weddings and events, managed a handmade jewelry business on Front St. in Lahaina, before trading in a surfboard for a snowboard in beautiful Bend, Oregon to be closer to family. Erin joined the small but mighty team at Economic Development for Central Oregon (EDCO) where she manages fundraising for the organization through memberships, sponsorships and events including monthly PubTalks, the Bend Venture Conference, and the EDCO Annual Luncheon bringing the regional business community together. During her time in Bend she has been a grateful member of Opportunity Knocks, enjoys being a part of Bridging Bend’s “New Economy” and is a longtime supporter and volunteer of the Festival of Trees benefiting Cascade Health Solutions. Erin’s not a big fan of the word “NO” and has been known to find a way to get things done while benefiting all involved.
