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.
After getting married, Erin began working on a MSEd in Secondary Education for Social Studies at Old Dominion University. 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. 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 served as an officer and competitor on the nationally ranked Moot Court Board at Regent and graduated in the top 10 in her class. Erin, along with her husband Brenden, is also on the board of directors of a local non-profit, East Coast Gold Weightlifting.
Practicing law in Virginia Beach, and giving back to the community that raised her, is a dream come true for Erin. She currently lives in Chics Beach and loves spending time with her husband and son at the beach. She also loves weightlifting with East Coast Gold at Crossfit Rife in Virginia Beach.
