Who I was
I am Erin Bros…a well travelled, avid backcountry skier, kayaker, climber, musician, surfer, yogi, tree planter… pursuing a life as a field mapping geologist and aspiring avalanche technician. I currently call Prince Rupert, BC home. I have a B.Sc from Dalhousie University in Earth Sciences and am currently completing my MSc in Geology from the University of Alberta. My experience so far is geological bedrock and structural mapping in ancestral Laurentia, the Cordillera, and the Laurentian platform. I have mapped a wide array of rock suites, from Archean basement to Triassic volcanics. I am also pursuing a second career in the avalanche industry, as an avalanche technician as it compliments my field geology career nicely. I love being in the mountains.
I believe strongly in doing what you love and are passionate about. I am a strong activist for mental health and domestic abuse awareness. I believe in living out all parts of my life, personally and professionally, with a deep level of integrity, honesty and respect. I will leave you with one of my favourite quotes:
They say your life flashes before your eyes right before you die, you see things in your life, the important moments –the moments that tested you, the moments that made you who you are. We’re all gonna die. We don’t get much say on how or when, but we do get to decide how we are gonna live. So do it, decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? kinder? more compassionate? Decide. Breathe in…Breathe out…and decide.
Who I am now
Still well traveled, still an adventurer of sorts. I have been rebirthing as a healed adult returning to my truest, most authentic self. I am a writer, poet, yogi, feminine woman. I dabble in surfing, skiing, kayaking, climbing, singing. I have been treeplanting for a decade and spent the better part of 7 years working all over northern Canada as a field geologist. I step into myself, who above all else, uses words to speak truths-about healing, losing, grieving, loving, celebrating, living this one and beautiful life. I hope I can inspire you through my own journey to pursue those and that which is of most importance to your own heart and soul.
