Helping to make it YOUR enterprise,
Founder / Coach The Actors' Enterprise "Where Art + Business
"I came to Erin having recently arrived
in New York from a much smaller market. I was overwhelmed. I wasn't
sure how to market myself - what my type was, etc. Not only was
Erin welcoming, and warm, she quickly ascertained exactly where
I was and what I needed. She put forth a plan that was realistic.
I want to emphasize that word, "realistic." So many out
there make promises they can't possibly have control over. Erin
isn't one of them. She meets you where you are, gives you what
you need, and then coaches you to move in the directions she has
set forth. The rest is up to you. But like all good coaches, she
checks in, albeit never pushing herself, rather letting you decide
if you need a brush up, etc. The best cost effective money you
can spend." -Debbie Friedlander, Theater Actor
"I was totally happy
with the service you provided, Erin. In particular I was impressed
with your quick intelligence that cut to the essence of my monologues:
you saw in five minutes (or less!) what I had not seen in months
of studying the text. And, as one of your other testimonials says,
you're very nice in the way you communicate to your students. We
all need a coach who will treat us well and build us up in confidence.
I most certainly would recommend you!"- Gary
