Animals, yoga, music, and a good cup of tea.
Nothing gets Erin going quite like the above. Except, of course, the regulatory compliance of our clients.
Before joining the Veracious team, Erin explored her passion for the natural world through a variety of jobs, including primate caretaker on a vegan commune, behind-the-scenes aquarium tour guide, and middle school science teacher. Notably, she served in the Coast Guard Reserves as a Marine Science Technician, where she performed reviews of site safety plans, operations manuals, and training manuals for commercial facilities and vessels in accordance with Federal regulations. She first entered the cannabis industry in 2014, managing the licensing, development, and operation of a 50,000 square foot cultivation and production facility as well as two dispensaries. Erin would go on to oversee the buildout, licensing, and development of standard operating procedures for facilities in California, Connecticut, and Oregon, as well as the launching of new brands and growing concepts in the United States and Canada.
Throughout her time in the cannabis industry, Erin has worked with local government officials to develop new ordinances in responses to changing regulatory landscapes. Her expertise and on-going consulting work includes initial licensing for entities, the groundwork for national brands entering new markets, developing compliant SOPs and employee training programs, conducting spot-audits, liaising with state and local regulators on behalf of clients, developing code, collecting and synthesizing data, and ensuring operational efficiency.
When she isn’t working, she can be found at the gym, hiking, reading, hunting for used records, or relaxing at home with her beloved pets.
