As the state’s DVRP, Erin provides resources and training specific to domestic and sexual violence issues to law enforcement, prosecutors, advocates and other community partners.

In addition to creating, hosting, and facilitating trainings and conferences around the state, Erin continues to handle complex domestic and sexual violence cases while also working on legislative and policy matters related to those same issues. Before joining the Department of Justice, Erin worked as a Deputy District Attorney in Yamhill and Marion counties. Since 1999, she has prosecuted domestic violence and major person felonies, including child and adult sex abuse crimes and homicides.

Erin has also served on a number of statewide domestic and sexual violence–related work groups, including the Statewide Firearms and Domestic Violence Task Force (Chair); Governor’s Domestic Violence Prevention and Response Task Force, the Oregon Sexual Assault Task Force (SATF), and Oregon’s Domestic Violence Fatality Review Team (Chair).
