Erin Newlands


Erin was born in Atlanta, but grew in Orlando, FL.  She enjoyed outdoor activities growing up and played lacrosse for Winter Park High School.  After graduation from the International Baccalaureate Program, she selected the University of Florida to continue her education.  Erin enrolled in the Health Science Program in 2002 and graduated with an additional Business Minor in 2006.  During college, Erin was active with her sorority, Alpha Chi Omega, and as the Overall Marketing Chair for Dance Marathon benefitting Children’s Miracle Network. 

Throughout college, Erin worked for electronics retailers and got hooked!  After graduation she continued working for Best Buy in Central Florida in various leadership positions and a few years later decided to pack up and go on a new adventure.  She moved to NYC in January of 2010 with only what fit in her car.  After 2.5 years in various positions and different parts of New York state, Erin decided to take another leap and now works in leadership for Apple.

Outside of work, Erin enjoys running and has set a goal to run the NYC Marathon for the 2nd time this year.  Her favorite things to do involve traveling anywhere, being at a beach, and snowboarding (although quite the novice).  She and her husband, Kevin, have a 3-year-old boxer named Bristol and 1-year boxer named Laila who absorb most of their energy and attention at home…but is also the center of their lives.  On Saturdays in the fall, she can always be found rooting for the Gators at Gin Mill!  After moving around the state for 4 years, Erin has put down roots in Manhattan for the past 2 years has become more involved with the Gotham Gators.  Erin was VP Membership for the past 2 years and I excited to guide the direction of the Gotham Gators for the next year!
