Erin was a 1993 graduate from Thomas Dale High School. During her junior and senior year, she attended Chesterfield Technical Center and found her passion, caring for others as a CNA which led her to continuing her career in the medical field over the years. She always had a big smile, a contagious laugh, and a huge heart for helping the less fortunate. Erin spent her free time volunteering at, A Place of Miracles Cafe in Richmond, for the last 5 years.
Her favorite past time was to go thrift shopping, and to go to the OBX, where she enjoyed collecting seashells, watching the beautiful sunsets, and just relaxing on the beach with her toes in the water, and her *** in the sand, with her family and friends. She also was a very avid nap taker.
