Erin started as the Waterloo Community Foundation’s first full-time Executive Director in August 2021. She spent seven years at Love INC, a local non-profit and the last 3 years as its Executive Director. During that time, she learned about the tangible needs of the community, collaborated with local churches and agencies, and cultivated donor relationships. Erin has called Waterloo home for the last 10 years and loves that it has the industry, arts, and diversity of a large metropolitan area, but retains the simple Iowa lifestyle. She and her husband, Jesse Tink, and their two children, Jude and Ellie, are grateful to grow their roots in Waterloo.
