Trauma affects everyone and has lasting consequences on all aspects of a person’s life: social, physical and emotional. The ACE study is a tool used to get a baseline of a person’s trauma history, which can be used to focus energy and services toward building resiliency. Resilient KC is a bistate initiative focusing on fostering a healthy Kansas City. Erin is an ambassador for Resilient KC,choosing to focus her volunteer work on veterans and their unique experiences.

She has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Missouri Western State University and a master’s in social welfare from the University of Kansas. Rock Chalk!
