Erin is a demonstrated leader in manufacturing operations with a passion for process improvement, organizational strategy, and employee development.
An avid competitor, Erin was a four year starting goalkeeper for the Women’s Soccer team at Valparaiso University where she earned her Bachelors of Science in Business Administration. Not ready to hang up her cleats after graduation, Erin went on to work as a Graduate Assistant Soccer Coach at Indiana State University, while earning her Master’s in Business Administration, with a concentration in finance.
Upon graduating from ISU, Erin relocated to Texas, where her husband (a born and raised Alaskan) had found employment. Erin pursued a career in higher education, working for the University of North Texas where she managed the scholarships and fellowships for the university’s graduate school. While she enjoyed her time at UNT, Erin desired a chance to gain experience for a large international cooperation.
In 2012 Erin joined Halliburton Energy Services as an hourly Quality Assurance, Quality Control (QAQC) Coordinator in their manufacturing organization. Starting from the ground up, let Erin build a foundational understanding for the business as well as the various motivational factors of the frontline. Utilizing these skills, Erin progressed through the organization into a frontline supervisor role, Continuous Improvement and QAQC Manager, Operations Business Unit Manager and finally a Center Manager. As a Center Manager, Erin was responsible for the site strategy, safety, quality, delivery, financial and employee performance for 200 individuals, and shipping $15M in product and assembled tools each month.
While she loved leading a team, Erin and her husband dreamed of moving to Alaska to be closer to family. They are excited to finally be out of the Texas heat, and share all that Alaska has to offer with their two daughters.
