HOUSTON — Erin is the local economy reporter for the Houston Chronicle.

Within this beat, she writes enterprise business stories about Houston’s most pressing forces, including energy markets, climate change and income inequality.

Before moving to Houston, Erin interned with Bloomberg in New York in 2018 covering oil markets. The summer before that, she interned with The Denver Post, her hometown newspaper, as a business reporter. She also worked on ProPublica’s Electionland project covering the access to vote during the 2018 midterm elections.

Erin graduated from Colorado State University in 2018 with undergraduate degrees in journalism and economics. She was the editor-in-chief of The Rocky Mountain Collegian, the daily campus newspaper.

Erin grew up in Colorado and often travels with her family across the west exploring the outdoors. She enjoys camping, hiking and kayaking. She is not afraid of heights, does not have the patience to be a good fisher(wo)man, and always forgets to buy one of those state-themed Starbucks mugs when she visits a new place.

Yes, she likes living in Houston.
