Campaign Manager of Live Below the Line Canada, an initiative of the Global Poverty Project

Erin is Toronto born and bred but ever since a young age always had a curiosity about the world outside of her city, reading articles and books about other people and places.

An even split between corporate sector (Market Research) and development sector (overseas work in Cambodia and Grenada), Erin’s career is now focused on leading campaigns and initiatives through the Global Poverty Project.
