Erin supports a variety of research and program evaluation projects with partners including the National Charter Schools Institute, the Michigan Department of Education, and the Walton Family Foundation. She is a calm listener, enabling her to approach our partners’ concerns and needs with deep understanding.
For eight years Erin served as an associate director at the National Association of Charter School Authorizers where she worked closely with authorizers to improve practices that directly impact student outcomes. She also launched a tool that authorizers use to access publicly available data about management organizations to improve organizational decision making.
Erin believes she is her best self when connecting with people who share her passion to give all children a great education. Among friends, she’s known as a gifted houseplant whisperer and frequents Chicago’s very local, highly social, and proudly non-competitive Bocce Ball league.
