Erin currently maintains her status as Alex’s adventure-seeking partner-in-crime and contributes to Upgraded Points through content creation & relationship management.
Born and raised in Illinois, Erin’s a Midwest girl at heart. While she traveled here and there before meeting Alex, his persistence with cracking the points game wide open has allowed her to experience some incredible destinations and fantastic flight upgrades – an exciting way to travel that will never (ever) get old!
Erin received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois in 2008 and went on to earn her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Miami in 2011. She currently works as a part-time Physical Therapist in the Austin area, which allows her the opportunity to grow in a profession she loves while affording her the time to contribute to UP and travel the world.
Aside from all this, she loves a good happy hour cocktail, could eat guacamole at every meal, and can’t get enough of their lab mix pup (and Head of Security), Leo.
