It’s not an easy job but the rewards outweigh the challenges
Since 2003 Erin has worked in the disability sector and is currently a case manager helping her clients address barriers they may face by advocating for them. Erin grew up with a family member with an intellectual disability and more recently acquired her own disability after experiencing a stroke. Her own experience with disability has made her even more passionate about being a voice for others. Erin concedes that being a case manager is a tough job, but it is also incredibly rewarding.
