Public Training Program & Transfer Coordinator
Erin first began working professionally in animal welfare in 2014 after years of developing personal experience handling, rehabilitating, and fostering both wild and companion animals. Her career began in Minneapolis, Minnesota with a large regional Humane Society but she soon answered the call to return to Colorado and joined the Client Care Team at LHS in 2015, providing service at both the Adoption and Intake desks. Eager to deepen her work with animals and the people who love them, Erin became a Senior Client Care Team Member, expanding her range of responsibilities within the shelter. In February of 2017, Erin transitioned from the Client Care Team to become a member of the Training & Behavior Department to the position she currently holds as the Public Training Program Coordinator. As Public Training Program Coordinator, Erin oversees all public dog training and Adoption Follow-up programs, and acts as a resource to answer training questions, instruct obedience courses, conduct behavioral evaluations, and supervise puppy playgroups. In July of 2019, Erin took on the additional role of Transfer Coordinator, further expanding her responsibilities at LHS. Erin received an Associate’s degree of Science, and later obtained a Bachelor’s degree majoring in Zoology from Colorado State University in Fort Collins. She lives in Longmont with her fiancé, and their three lovable and goofy rescue dogs, Domino, Dobby, and Dexter.
