Erin was born in Barfield in 1995. Her family was quite close and everyone got along well, including after her sister was born in 1997. Erin attended Harrington Grammar School for kindergarten and first grade, but during this time, her mother was diagnosed with cancer. When Erin was 6, her mother passed away. Since Erin was very young at the time, she and her sister vaguely remembered their mother, and Erin tried to be tough but she often wished for a mother figure in her life.
After the tragedy, Erin's father took the girls and moved from Barfield to Miduna Beach to get a fresh start. He raised Erin and her sister as well as he could considering his work, so the sisters spent a lot of time together and were close. Both girls attended MBES and MBHS. At school, Erin was well-liked as she was pretty and artistically and athletically talented, but she was introverted and never got very attached to other people even though she had many friends around her. This changed when she met Crystal Carter in junior high. The two became fast friends who were inseparable in talking about everything.
After graduating high school, Erin went to Desmond College of the Arts, where Crystal also went, and she continued her love of arts and pursued her fashion work. She also worked as an art tutor for elementary school students in a neighboring school. Her fashion work slowly became recognized after she attended a fashion show in New York City in late fall 2013. Later that year, a fashion company offered Erin an internship in New York, so she excitedly transferred to a school in NY that semester and enjoyed it enough to complete her degree there and work there. Unfortunately, she barely kept in touch with her friends back in Miduna Beach, but she was content with her new life.
