I think it’s easy for engineers—or anyone in this industry, really—to forget the impact they have when things get busy and it’s ‘heads down.’ You become so efficient at what you do that the special details are just part of your process. I love that I get to help our folks remember how amazing they really are.”

With a print journalism background and affinity for creative storytelling, Erin believes that every single person—and project, for that matter—has a story. Prior to joining the AEC community, Erin worked as a features writer and copy editor for a news weekly in northern Michigan before moving to the Pacific Northwest. She joined DCI in 2016 and has been actively involved in the firm’s corporate marketing initiatives, ranging from sustainability to recruiting, and both internal and external communications.

Erin spearheads DCI’s videography efforts, often travelling to the firm’s regional offices to interview staff and capture projects both on the ground and in the sky, as she’s an FAA certified drone pilot. When she’s not plugging away at her computer, Erin enjoys running, flyfishing and camping with her husband in Washington’s beautiful and diverse wildlife.

What was your favorite class in college?
Theories of Communication with Corey Anton – so fun and engaging.

Where is your hometown?
A little town called Kaleva in northern Michigan. No stoplights and darn proud of it!

What is your favorite thing about the DCI work environment?
I sound like a parrot… but it really is the people. There’s a level of trust and fellowship I have with my team that I haven’t experienced elsewhere.
