Erin Crutcher has a special place in her heart for DMC. Erin and DMC’s relationship began in 2013 while she was in the process of adapting to physical, cognitive, and mental health challenges that nearly took her life in 2010. Erin’s circumstances hadn’t changed her attitude to keep moving forward with her goals, yet all the social support systems in her life kept telling her what she couldn’t do, wouldn’t do, and shouldn’t do. DMC was and is the only organization that aligned with her attitude of being able and independent, and our services and support kept her moving forward with her heart’s desires.
Erin is a business executive in the Healthcare industry and has been involved in a variety of organizations focusing on Integrative Medicine and Lifestyle Education (personalized evidence-based medicine emphasizing diet/nutrition/lab work) for Healthcare Professionals and Consumers. In addition to her Bachelor of Science in Business Marketing and Business Management, she is obtaining a Masters from USC to become a Gerontologist. Erin’s wisdom as a diversely abled individual, her self-care practices rooted in Evidence-Based Medicine, and the multi-dimensional academic knowledge of aging well through the lifespan has her on stand-by as a powerful educator and advocate for social change in our community.
In short, Erin joined our Board of Directors to pay it forward to DMC, and her love for our community fuels her service. Erin says, “although I may not know you by name my heart knows if you have found DMC you are in the right place to make a dynamic difference in all areas of your life.”
