Erin was initiated into the Beta Eta Chapter in 2002, as a sophomore at Florida State. Throughout college, she was active in the student chapter of Habitat for Humanity, serving for three years as the Director of Collegiate Challenge, an alternative/volunteer spring break program. Within Alpha Chi, she was the Community Service chair, enjoyed participating in Line Dance, running in 5Ks with her running buddy, Brittany Horwitt, and dancing in skits for Recruitment and Homecoming. In 2005, she graduated from Florida State University with a BS in Interior Design.
Upon graduation, she accepted a job at Franco A. Pasquale Design Associates in Tampa and relocated to St. Petersburg. She is still at that first job today, having been promoted to Project Manager in the high-end residential firm and in the last year, becoming a Florida Registered Interior Designer and a LEED Accredited Professional – which equals lots of letters behind her name, to show hard work and multiple tests! Over the past four years, she has been the acting City Center Director and Vice President of City Centers for the Florida Chapter of the International Interior Design Association, gaining valuable connections with designers in the state, as well as additional skills of managing events for over 400 members!
Erin feels very lucky to be surrounded with other Beta Eta alumnae in the Tampa Bay area, including her little sister, Jane King, and grand-little, Allison Parker. When she initially moved to Tampa Bay, Catherine Fly was the first sister and friend she contacted about the area and they still remain very close. She has also been fortunate enough to continue traveling (the bug started at FSU with study abroad programs) to other countries and around the US, including visits to sisters in other states!
