Quality Control Director/Case Manager
Erin is thrilled to join the Celebrate Ability team! She began her career while still in high school as a respite care provider and Montessori preschool assistant. After earning her Bachelor’s of Science in Secondary Special Education and her Master’s of Education in Secondary and Transition Special Education from the University of Maryland, College Park, Erin joined the University’s College of Education staff as an advisor, recruiting and advising students entering the field of special education. Her lifelong passion for working with children and adults of all abilities stems from observing family members benefit from therapeutic services. Erin has worked with students ages 2-22 and their families as an IEP case manager, special education teacher, school counselor and academic administrator in Maryland, Washington DC, and Virginia in multiple settings including brick-and-mortar, blended-model, and virtual classrooms. She recently earned her 200-hour yoga certification where she learned to teach trauma-informed, accessible yoga classes and meditation practices in hopes of supporting mindfulness activities for children and adults with varying needs. She is passionate about supporting Celebrate Ability’s mission to empower and engage individuals with autism and their families.
