Erin and Keri are intimately familiar with all of the pieces needed to help businesses and professionals thrive. They founded The Collective for Designers because they believe that “we are better together – as individuals, as designers, as a community”. They are business consultants, systems specialists, and people people who are on a mission to provide a collaborative community for designers to reach THEIR business goals alongside other creatives and business experts.
Both Colorado natives, they love getting into the mountains. Keri is a graduate of CU’s Marketing School.

Erin, aka the client whisperer, is a graduate of the University of Denver with a background in creating positive Customer Engagement and Retention, Leadership Development, Event Management, Sales, Communications, and Coaching.
