Erin Delawalla

co-FOUNDER, dreamer

Erin is the co-founder of Altitude.  She was surprised to learn how many educated people knew nothing about conservation, the causes of environmental harm, or were uncertain of how to make small lifestyle changes to reduce environmental impact. Then, there's that issue of how confusing and politicized the narrative in the media can be. Erin wanted an option to prevent people from DISENGAGING. Thus, Altitude.

She is a former environmental attorney, a mom, a wife and a dreamer. She currently works in the sustainable development of renewable energy.
