Position: Web Specialist and (according to Mike) “Web Guru”
Work related passion: Designing new websites for clients and knowing that the work I do has the potential to greatly improve their business.
Education: B.S. in Marketing and Management from University of Delaware
Motto: “If Plan A didn’t work, don’t worry. The alphabet has 25 more letters.”
Favorite challenge: Figuring out work-arounds to problems that have no easy solutions. In a tech-related position, there is rarely a readily available answer to a client’s specific needs, and I love being able to find ways to get the job done anyway.
Big move: When I started working full time. I worked with Alias part-time all through college and never had time to take on big projects. I love having the time now to tackle bigger ventures and getting to own my projects instead of only having responsibility for a tiny piece of it.
What employees say about Erin: “Erin’s drive is extremely obvious in everything that she does. Her perfectionism in her work matched with her ability to communicate in a gentle and sweet manner makes her one of the easiest people to work with.” -CP
What Erin wants for the future: I can’t wait to see where Alias goes in the next few years. I’m excited to be in a workplace that invests in my continued learning about web design and online marketing so I can grow with the company!
When Erin isn’t working: I love traveling to interesting places and finding fun new adventures. I also spend way too much time watching TV shows like The Office and Game of Thrones, and I like to think I’m good at crafting!
