Background and Education
Erin grew up in Hampton Roads and after graduating from Indian River High School in Chesapeake, she went on to attend the College of William and Mary. Erin knew from a young age she wanted to attend the historic college that boasts three of the nation’s first ten presidents and four Supreme Court Justices as alumni. The academically challenging environment at William and Mary instilled in her a love of learning and an unfailing work ethic. She graduated with a B.A. in Government in 2005.
Erin began working on an MSEd in Secondary Education for Social Studies at Old Dominion University in 2008. Her son Duffy was born during her last year of the program, and in 2011 she taught American Government at Oscar Smith High School in Chesapeake.
In 2016, when Duffy began first grade, Erin started law school at Regent University in Virginia Beach. Erin graduated Cum Laude from Regent University School of Law in 2019. After passing the July 2019 Virginia Bar Exam, Erin was admitted to practice by the Supreme Court of Virginia and the United States District Court for the Eastern and Western Districts of Virginia.
While juggling motherhood, being a wife to a Virginia Beach City Firefighter, and a full load of classes, Erin worked for the Honorable Raymond A. Jackson at the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, and Judge Glen Huff on the Virginia Court of Appeals. She also served as an officer and competitor on the nationally-ranked Moot Court Board at Regent.
