Candlelighters
Erin Collett
Community Engagement Manager

I’m a stay-at-home Mom to my three children, Maya, Joshua and Zoe. The decision to stay at home after our first daughter was born was a team decision for my husband and I. With a business degree from Memorial University, I didn’t want to give up on a career, but my husband and I decided that we wanted to raise our children with one parent at home.
My decision to join Candlelighters as their Family Programs and Event Coordinator back in 2020 came as my youngest started Kindergarten. With all three children in school, I wanted to use my free time to do good for the community. It’s always been important to me to help others, whether with my own children, other family members, friends or even a stranger on the street. I’m very happy to be a part of the Candlelighters NL family and look forward to my new role as Community Engagement Manager!
