Along the way Erin’s lived all over Florida, from the Palm Beaches to the Florida Keys.

"I love Sarasota, I raised my family here and there's no place else I'd rather be. I'm looking forward to joining such a successful team at Visit Sarasota County and to help show off this area to as many people as possible!" she said.
