Erin Avant is a graduate of Colombia College Chicago with an MA in International Business.
A Chicago native with 15 years experience in logistics and fluency in four foreign languages, she began her career as an expeditor with Dole Fresh Fruit Purchasing, in Gulfport, MS. She has worked on both the shipper and forwarder side of the supply chain, eventually taking over the Chicago division of Nobel Cargo Systems, a highly specialized Brazilian forwarder after a short stint as a grant writer for NASA.
Understanding her tenure is the result of a happy accident, she freely admits that she never would have thought about the logistics profession, but her parents refused to allow her to attend a college to major in philosophy because, in their words, she could wander the streets in a bathrobe arguing with people for free. After surviving the polar vortex of 2014, she decided to relocate further south and focus on technical writing for logistics professionals, finally marrying her best friend of almost a decade. She’s written two novels, maintains a pop fiction, short story blog and has petitioned her local animal shelter to just give in and allow her to open a tab.
