Brief Introduction:
Erin Creagh
Erin has been teaching for 10 years now. She absolutely loves education and recognizes its ability to make a positive change in peoples lives. She is passionate about getting to know her students and the reasons behind their pursuit for higher education. 
According to Erin “the biggest personal accomplishment is how I finished my Bachelors Degree, Masters Degree and CGA designation within 5 years while working FT as a single parent. This accomplishment didn’t come with any formal acknowledgement but the achievement of my education goals under adverse conditions is the most meaningful to me.” Erin is known for her quick marking turnaround times and funny memes.

Industry Experience:

After starting the CGA program, she left the municipality to gain more experience, which she did as an Accountant at a helicopter repair and overhaul facility. To continue expanding her knowledge base, Erin took on a role of Strategic Development Analyst at a Financial Institution. After receiving her accounting designation, the opportunity arose for her to switch back into government as the Director of Finance at Tzeachten First Nation, which she happily accepted as she loves making a positive impact in local communities. During her time at the First Nation, she was also a co-owner of a trucking company with her husband. Currently, despite a busy schedule, she co-owns an apiary with her husband.
