I've always had trouble pinning down an answer to the age-old question, "What do you want to do when you grow up?" While I could never settle on a specific job title or trade, I knew I wanted something that would challenge and inspire me, and something that actively promoted sustainability, balance, and preservation of our natural resources. Alta fulfills all of these requirements! Every day, I'm amazed by the work we do, and proud to be a part of the active transportation movement. When I visit my family in Iowa, I get to point out work Alta has done in that region - it's wild to live in such a small world, and to know the work I do at Alta touches so many communities far and wide.
Erin grew up and went to school in Iowa, where she studied English and Art. After moving to Portland in 2008, she worked as a project coordinator for a local non-profit environmental foundation. She shifted to Alta in 2011, where for several years she served as the company’s corporate administrative and human resources manager. In 2014, Erin made the jump to Alta’s marketing department. She lends her expertise as a skilled communicator and organizer to coordinate the proposal efforts for Alta’s Pacific Northwest region. She is adept at time management and working under pressure to deliver exceptional products for the many active transportation proposals in the region.
