Erin holds a Masters degree in Indigenous Governance from the University of Victoria where her thesis work focused on imagining creative and culturally-rooted Indigenous community responses to the Crown’s duty to consult and accommodate. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts in political science.

For over a decade, Erin has worked in Indigenous health policy and research with experience working at the community level, in provincial and national political/advocacy organizations, and within provincial health authorities.
