Erin is from Florida where she spent a lot of time in swamps and citrus groves. Her family loved traveling which allowed her to experience frequent trips to Europe and Asia in her youth. She graduated from a pre-pro ballet school as a senior in high school and moved to New York City to continue dancing. While in New York, she graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology with an Associate’s Degree in Jewelry Design, and was an intern at Barry Kieselstein-Cord. She moved to Bozeman in 2009, where she obtained a BFA in Metalsmithing with a Minor in Small Business/Entrepreneurship from Montana State University. She has completed GIA Diamond Essentials, GIA Diamonds & Diamond Grading, DCA Colored Gemstone Courses and the Stone Setting Comprehensive from New Approach School for Jewelers. She is a Co-Artistic Director of Raison D’être Dance Project, which allows her to keep living her dance dream and moving with her besties after work. She lives in Bozeman with her husband, Mark, and their two cats, Smokey and Walter. In her spare time, she is passionate about baking sourdough, creating elaborate charcuterie boards, and making her own bitters.
