I'm a design strategist and facilitator with The Design Gym. I oversee corporate innovation training programs, lead design sprints, and advise on culture change initiatives within organizations.
In previous career iterations, I’ve been a design product manager at General Assembly and I also spent four years leading a creative team at an ad agency. The full history is on LinkedIn.
I'm a certified meditation instructor and I focus on integrating mindfulness, compassion, and contemplative practices into workplace environments. I also teach yoga and run a pop-up studio out of my apartment in Brooklyn. Check it out at www.erin-yoga.com
Writing helps me learn, process, and develop unique points of view. Here are links to articles that have been published recently. I'm grateful to everyone who has helped me edit over the years :)
