Erin was born in Chicago and raised in Georgia, but she’s called the DC area home since 2008. A graduate of Harvard College (BA in English and religion) and Harvard Divinity School (MDiv), Erin was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop John Guernsey in 2011. In addition to her background in parish ministry, Erin has served as a chaplain in a hospital and an outpatient eating disorder treatment program, and she is a certified spiritual director.
Erin lives in Arlington, where she loves that Turkish, Ethiopian, Thai, and Salvadoran restaurants are all walking distance from her house. In her free time, Erin enjoys exploring DC’s museums, theaters, and parks, as well as reading, cooking, hiking, and working the occasional 1000-piece puzzle. She also gets to Arizona as often as she can to see her nieces and nephew (who she’ll inform you are the greatest kids in the world).
Erin accepted the call to be the Rector of St. Michael’s in September 2017, after having served as Interim Rector since April 2017.
