Erin is an active volunteer for the Miles Perret Cancer Services in Lafayette and a proud donor for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Cancer prevention and treatment is an issue that is very close to Erin’s heart because her father is a survivor of throat cancer. Erin is also looking forward to teaching women the importance of following their dreams. She wants to use her title to show the people of Louisiana how much her wonderful state means to her.

In her own words

Quate I've always been a very competitive person, whether it's game night or bowling with a group of friends. Competing with 50 other beautiful women on the Miss USA stage who are just as competitive will be intense, but it is things like this that push me to be my best. Quate
