Erin is a native cheese-head (GO PACK GO!), who, in the academic pursuit of a tenure-track position, chased her husband from Wisconsin, to Indiana, to Ohio. The journey they lovingly call the “Tour de Midwest” ended in June of 2018, when they landed in the 901 for Patrick’s position with Rhodes College. While the Midwest holds a special place in their hearts, they are happy to be planting roots in the South with their daughter, Nola (May 2016) and insane rescue dog, Toby. A social worker that loves research, Erin works at St. Jude in clinical research. You can usually spot her with a coffee (heavy on the creamer), ‘second-day hair’ that is tossed in a bun, attempting to bake, or talking about how she would like to bake but doesn’t have time, all while using humor to take on the day. Erin’s excited to use her Midwestern “doncha’ know” in conjunction with the southern “ya’ll.” Doncha’ know, ya’ll? It’s gonna catch on.
