Erin Heim

Erin Heim

Co-Founder State College, PA / Somerville, MA

Before entering politics, Erin Heim earned a PhD in Genetics from Yale University. Her jump from science to politics was propelled by the shooting at her alma mater, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. In response to the shooting, she founded the MSD Alumni of New England -- a gun-safety advocacy organization, that successfully lobbied for the passage of a Red Flag Law in Massachusetts. From there she went on to manage the successful MA State House campaign of Rep. Marjorie Decker - the sponsor of the Red Flag bill. Erin then transitioned to a role at ActBlue as an Associate Partnerships Manager, followed by her role as the Operations and Scheduling Director for a U.S. Senate Race, where Erin and Kate met and founded Reservoir Strategies. Erin enjoys board games, cooking, and talking about CRISPR technological advancements. She lives in State College, PA with her husband, Joel, and rescue dog, Suri.
