Erin applies a storytelling lens to her work in business development. “I’m interested in the stories buildings tell about the people who use them—their culture, history, how individuals and groups communicate and innovate,” she remarks. Erin is passionate about serving the firm’s Healthcare, S&T, Higher Ed and Workplace markets and more. She is a lifelong learner, excited about the work the firm’s clients are doing in genomics and neuroscience. “Designing a better future isn’t just about the work we do,” she says. “It’s about understanding our clients’ work, business models and operational challenges, so that we become deeply invested in their success.” An athlete and team player, Erin values collaboration and communication. She enjoys her work embedded in projects, developing strategic business plans for Community Impact, living SmithGroup’s J.E.D.I. values. A genuine love of connecting people to each other in service of community underscores all she does.
