Life is one big exploration.
Born in British Columbia, Erin is a world traveler who sees her life as a great adventure. Growing up, she wanted to be a teacher. But after two years in the classroom, she grew frustrated. Only ever being able to help 20-30 kids at a time wasn’t enough. Erin wanted more. She wanted to do more. She wanted to leave a more lasting impact on the world.
Her parents had always taught her that she should all do all she could to try to make the world a better place. So that’s exactly what she set out to do. Erin participated in our first Oncology University pilot to gain the knowledge needed to work on Oncology trials, hoping to help solve one of the most complex problems facing the world today. Then she became a CRA.
If you can hate a disease, it’s fair to say that Erin hates cancer. Motivated by the loss of her best friend to cancer and inspired to find ways to help people improve their quality of life, her desire to find a cure is very personal. She strives to help prevent people from losing their lives so early, so pointlessly, and to provide more stability for the generations to come.
This year, for the first time ever, Erin officially begins working on a cure for cancer. This year, Erin begins leaving her legacy.
One of the coolest things about being a CRA is that we get to travel all over. Traveling really helps with the global perspective. Coming together and meeting people from all over the world has really helped me realize that we are all really similar and have the same desire – to leave humanity better than how we found it.
