Erin’s hobbies include chasing her toddler, photography and travel. Her first career was as a NYC based flight attendant and the travel bug followed her into her new life as an LA. She and her family continue to travel abroad and are doing their best to instill the travel bug in their daughter.

When it comes to landscape architecture Erin says:

“I always wanted a job that would allow me to leave something behind and perhaps make the world a better place. I feel that even when I design someone’s garden, in the smallest of ways, I am making that person’s world better. And that is my greatest joy”.

We’re delighted to have Erin here with us at LAN, her mixture of experience, excellence and a desire to keep learning are all sure to pack her articles with a keen sense of detail and cutting edge insights.
