Erin Cox


"Nudges wrapped in love." That's what my staff used to call my efforts to hone in on an area of growth and provide well-timed, specific, actionable guidance to make us/it/them better. Hi, I'm Erin. I specialize in taking something - a person, a process, an organization, an idea - figuring out what makes it special, and then growing and expanding that amazing thing to achieve incredible results. I did this for 20 years at two education non-profits (Jumpstart and uAspire), and now I have the pleasure of doing it at wiseHer. BA from Tufts (Child Development, honors). MBA from Boston University (highest honors). iPEC Coaching Certificate (in process)

I had my first WiseHer call with Erin the other day and I'm still feeling the energy and positivity from our discussion! Erin quickly identified blind spots in my mindset that have become roadblocks to my career goals. Most importantly, I came away with answers to my questions, tactical steps to execute on, and an expert, who can relate to my experiences, a phone call away. Thank you Erin!
