Erin Nicole

President

Born mountain-dwelling hippie, turned world-traveling, US Navy operations communications specialist, Erin’s passion for supporting the youth in us all began with her own struggles in school and being bullied. In adulthood, the struggle became physical. She was sick for many years before finding the healing that only self-love can bring.

 

Erin has degrees in business and health marketing communications. She is a disabled military veteran and is a practitioner in energy healing. She also owned a popular and unique salon for two decades in San Deigo and worked as a cosmetologist specializing in hair restoration. Erin was awarded a humanitarian award for a volunteer program she started for seniors which provided free haircuts to more than 100 people each month.

 

Erin has led branding, marketing, and special events for multiple global and nationwide social impact projects and non-profits (CAYS, Blue Ribbons Worldwide, Autism Tree Project Foundation). She is also a fun-loving, multicultural innovative educator. As a much-beloved teacher, she brought a "new wave" curriculum to the Perris County educational system.

 

Erin is a creative visionary at heart, creating crafts for kids and adults through her shop on Etsy called ‘TheFaeryShoppe.’ Her art is published in the book Blindsight: A Quantum Life In A Human World.  For Erin, creativity is what keeps her growing and what keeps her time balanced. She knows her mission at heart is to ignite the creative side in all of us.

 

Erin knows that TOGETHER we are stronger and that when we feel truly valued, supported, and ignited, the sky’s the limit!
