Erin Wright joined the "Emerald family" in 2016 as registrar at Emerald Academy, Knoxville's first public charter school, and transitioned to Emerald Youth Foundation in 2017.
She is a Knoxville native who earned her bachelor's degree from Carson-Newman University. Erin wanted to work for Emerald because she sees it as a place where God's direction is so clearly followed and people's hearts and lives are truly being changed.
Before joining Emerald, she lived in Westcliffe, Colorado for a year and a half where she met her husband Sam Wright.
In her free time, Erin likes to write, play and sing songs, and she loves learning about Creation, all things outdoors and good mystery stories.
