Program. She left the iSchool briefly, working for a global information content and technology company from 2015-2016, and then returned to the iSchool as the MLIS Program Manager. Prior to starting the MLS Program, Erin worked in the non-profit sector. Erin moved into her current role, which is a remote position, so she could move out to Nevada to be closer to home.
