Erin is the CEO + Founder of Ella: an inclusive ecosystem unlocking women's access to human, social and financial capital. Through connection, consulting and coaching, Ella recognizes women's value and increases their valuation.

She is a LinkedIn Top 100 Influencer, Top 10 DEI Voice (#5) and wrote one of the 100 Most Influential LinkedIn Posts of the Decade.

She brings her 20 years experience leading global marketing, business development, branding and communications — and her counsel of The White House, Fortune 100 C-suite and senior leaders at some of the world’s biggest and best brands and companies (from LinkedIn to United Airlines to Carhartt to McDonald’s) — to the work she's doing to build generational wealth for women and accelerate them into positions of power and influence.

Through her work forging relationships with change makers and leaders who believe in the power of diversity, equity, inclusion and access, Erin has become (as one Global CMO so succinctly put it) “the not-so-secret weapon so many leaders count on to drive real change...she knows everyone.”

Erin is the creator of The Fairway (Dinners, Membership and App): inclusive, intersectional, intimate spaces where every woman has a seat to give and get business.

She is the creator of the #HypeWomen Movement and launched the Hype Women Podcast on Women’s Equality Day.
