Erin’s legal article, “Paroline: The Damages and the Damages Done” was recently published by the Law Review at LMU. Attention from the article has allowed Erin to meet with Senator Corker and Senator Hatch’s offices in Washington, D.C. to advocate for better restitution for victims of child pornography. Most recently, Erin met with Theo Wold, Special Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy to present her ideas for legal reform, which are now being workshopped by the administration for a possible executive order and Senatorial sponsorship. Erin previously worked as a child support prosecutor for the State of Tennessee, and is passionate about all child advocacy issues.
Erin is married to Bart, her high school sweetheart, and together they have three beautiful children. The Wallins live at the McCallie School, where Bart is employed as an assistant principal and dorm head. Outside of work, Erin enjoys family time, cooking, attending First Centenary United Methodist Church, and all things related to science fiction.
