Erin is a Clinical Dietitian working in outpatient nutrition at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). While at the Friedman School, Erin also completed her Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) at Simmons University and went on to the Dietetic Internship at MGH. Prior to Friedman, Erin was a lab manager for a Neurobiology Lab at Boston Children's Hospital. Her experience in bench research spurred her into seeking a career in communication, with the goal of translating research into functional, actionable information for individuals, communities, and institutions. While at Friedman, Erin interned for FoodMinds, Adeo Health Science (Inspired Start), and Danone. These experiences were invaluable, with each position she was able to grow her communication skills and better her understanding of the interplay between the food industry and nutrition and medical research.
Erin joined the AAEC right after graduation and serves on the Awards Committee. She is always happy to make time for Friedman students (or applicants) that have questions about the NICBC program or are considering the DPD path.
