Erin Chandler has a passion for working with nonprofit agencies. Before coming to Komen, Erin worked as a Community & Corporate for Relations Manager for The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Sacramento and Development Officer for Goodwill Industries of Sacramento and Northern Nevada, initially joining Susan G. Komen Northern & Central California as Development Manager. She brings multiple years of developing community partnerships, organizing fund-raising events, and other fund development activities. Erin also brings a passion for funding development in the breast cancer arena because she has witnessed first-hand the impact of this disease. Her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when Erin was a late teenager. Since that time, she has watched her mother become a breast cancer advocate and has participated in many Susan G. Komen races with her mother. Erin knows the importance of finding a cure so that women, especially those who are may have barriers to services can survive and thrive.
