In 2013, Erin sustained a T4 Spinal Cord Injury. While She was getting ready to lead a climb that she had been projecting for several months. While traversing from one side of a wall to the other before the technical part of the climb, she slipped and fell. Her fall was around 30 feet. Impact upon landing caused multiple fractures including ribs, femur, scapula, facial bones, vertebrae, and forearm.

Erin’s goal is to continue to pursue her dreams of becoming an accomplished Para-nordic skier.

“I think, therefore I am… confused.“
