Are you inspired and influenced by women you know and see that have incredible ‘style’? Their unique ‘look’ always seems to reflect both their personality and lifestyle. I sure do!
Coquitlam Centre has just undergone an exciting rebrand … and as part of that process, our blog is changing as well. Welcome to our first blog under the new ‘Runway to Realway’ masthead. I’ve approached some dynamic women I know to share their style with you, my fellow fashionistas. My first ‘Girl in Focus’ is Erin Moore. Many know her as the wife of Port Coquitlam’s mayor, Greg Moore, but she’s so much more than that. She’s a smart entrepreneur, a wonderful mother, and has the cutest “mod” style. Let’s meet her.
CeeCee: What do you do for work?
Erin: I own a consulting company, Livable Region Consulting. For the last three years, I was the administrator overseeing the staff and pastors at Riverside Community Church. I have now taken on a new contract as the Executive Director of I AM SOMEONE, a non-profit organization working towards ending bullying.
