Erin joined the Rubber News staff in May 2016, bringing more than 10 years of print and digital journalism experience to her role. She was named managing editor in May 2020.
Prior to joining the team at Crain, she was editor of The Suburbanite and affiliated publications in Canton, Ohio, overseeing two weekly and one biweekly publications. She also previously served as an education and general assignments writer for The Independent (2005-13) in Massillon, Ohio, and began her career as a part-time sports writer for The Repository in Canton.
