Erin Huggins joined El Pomar Foundation as a Fellow in July 2023. As a 1st Year Fellow, Erin works as a Program Associate for Elevating Leadership Development, Investment Challenge, and Western Leadership Academy. She also supports the Metro and San Luis Valley regions.
Erin grew up in Newark, New Jersey and graduated from Colorado College with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a minor in Education. During her time at CC, Erin worked at the Butler Center, the center for antiracism, diversity, equity, and inclusion on campus and as a student assistant at the Registrar’s office. Additionally, she was a member of the Cutthroat Rugby team, was the co-president of an affinity group for Black women on campus, and was involved with the Outdoor Education program as a trip leader. While studying Sociology, Erin deepened her understanding of the world around her and became fascinated by the social structures and systems that shape our society. These systems are far from perfect, which inspired her to get involved in nonprofit work and community service.
In her free time Erin likes to spend time with friends and family, mountain bike, journal, and play card games.
