    Hello everyone!

    My name is Erin and I’m one of the instructor/coaches in this program. I’m sorry that I won’t be able to meet each of you online at the welcome sessions. It’s a hectic time of year and I managed to have conflicts with each of the timeslots – thank you Judy for hosting those 🙂

    I’ve had the pleasure of working in this program with Judy since we launched it several years ago. This program is near and dear to my heart. I met some pretty incredible humans doing some pretty inspiring things on this journey. I can’t wait to be a part of each of your journeys too. I’ve read all of your bios and can’t wait to watch your business models develop.

    I describe myself as a community economic developer. I’ve focused my career on making on the economy work better for more people. I do that by working with emerging entrepreneurs, existing businesses, business improvement areas, municipalities, and economic regions. I care about helping people reach their full potential and supporting communities to flourish. I’ve been doing this work for over 20 years.

    In my day job, I’m a management consultant. I also teach the entrepreneurship certificate program at Mount Royal University. I’m on the Board of the Women’s Economic Council of Canada. I live in Calgary. And I have a busy family life, raising 3 teenagers aged 14-18.

    Please don’t be shy about asking questions in this forum. I do my best to pop in daily. I’m here to help!

    Looking forward to rolling up our sleeves together,

    Judy Evans


    It is such a pleasure to team with you on this project.

    Hi Erin,

    I read your brief bio with great enthusiasm as community wellness was my passion in policing and continues on with great citizenship and relationships in my life now (if I only knew then what I know now…). I am intrigued in learning more about community development, business, and the engagement that happens. Some much out there on community and the “art of possibility” through our relationships.

    Great being here and nice meeting you Erin
