what is one of your biggest passions?

I am passionate about many things but one of the things I am most passionate about is giving back to the community. I think it’s so important to give back and help others using the skills you have been blessed to develop. For the past four years, I have been volunteering with the Starlight Children’s Foundation, a non-profit children’s organization dedicated to brightening the lives of seriously ill children and their families. It has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and I would encourage everyone to find an organization they are passionate about and dedicate some of their time to helping them in any capacity. You won’t regret it!

Can you spot Erin in the crowd?

what's your favourite way to sweat?

My favourite way to sweat is running. There is nothing better than the high you get after a really strong run. It helps that Vancouver is one of the best places in the world to run, thanks to our beautiful mountains and the fabulous seawall. I have run a number of half-marathons and one of my biggest fitness goals is to run a full marathon in under four hours before July 3, 2012.

what is the best place you've travelled?

The best place I’ve travelled to is definitely Australia. I spent four months travelling, working and having the best time of my life in the country. I can’t pick a single place there because it’s all so fantastic! I even had the privilege of working at the lululemon store in Melbourne as an educator.

coolest thing about being a public relations specialist?

The coolest thing about being a PR Specialist is that I get to share everything about lululemon, our functional clothing, our amazing people and our unique culture, with media from around the world. This role provides me with the opportunity to experience firsthand how much other people are passionate about us and gives me an incredible sense of pride to be a member of the lululemon family.

what is the scariest thing you've ever done? are you glad you did it?

The scariest thing I have ever done is decide to travel alone internationally. There is no question in my mind it was the best thing I have ever done. I spent four months travelling throughout Australia and a month cruising around Thailand and every second was absolutely unbelievable! I met the most incredible people, saw beautiful places and learned so much about myself.

We are incredibly excited to have Erin on the team! As a guest or fan of our products and culture you can look forwards to experiencing the innovation and passion she will bring to how lululemon speaks to you! Investigate your own future possibilities on the lululemon careers page.

Hi there!

I just graduated with a marketing and PR degree, and I’m curious to know what Erin did before she got her position at Lululemon? I would love to work in a position like hers someday!

Congratulations Erin, what a wonderful and inspirational bio. I find in life it’s your expirences that can define you and certainly have had wonderful experiences. I can’t imagine travelling on my own even when I was younger. I hope you enjoy your post at Lululemon.

Thanks so much to everyone for reading this post and for your comments. I loved reading them!

Caren, in response to your question, before joining lululemon, I spent four years working at a large PR agency in Vancouver.

Thanks everyone!
