Erin Lynch

Erin has a BA (Honours) in Communication Studies and History from Carleton University, and has completed a Graduate Certificate in Public Relations from Mohawk College. She became interested in public relations in her second year of a university after learning about the many different professions in public relations, quickly focusing on corporate and sports communications. At Millier Dickinson Blais, Erin helps with social media efforts, editing and content production. Over the course of her internship, she has worked on resources for economic developers and contributed to both EconomicDevelopment.org’s website and newsletter, and MDB’s “This Is Not a Newsletter”. Before interning at MDB, Erin knew very little about economic development but soon developed a keen interest in economic and community development, with a particular focus on the reimagining of downtown cores. The evolution of STEM and the evolving applications for 3D printing are also subjects which she enjoys learning and writing about, both within Canada and globally. Erin can be found working on her fiction writing, practising her scenic photography, walking with her dog, or contributing to her blog.
