Her determined mindset and hard work allowed her to make the team at Oakland University, where most would say she lived at the course instead of in a dorm. After graduating, she continues to play competitive golf and still has a strong desire to get her game to the best it can be. Erin took a full time position after graduation as a Recruiter for a staffing and recruiting company in Troy, MI and has been there for almost two years now.
