About Coach Erin:

“I’ve worked at RCG Media and Advertising for a little over a year. I studied and played soccer at Augustana University in Sioux Falls, SD. Outside of work, anyone can find me trying every ice cream and coffee shop in Omaha! I grew up in Minnesota, so I like to explore all that Omaha has to offer!”
