My Story

My name is Erinn.
I am the mom behind Mom Wears Hiking Boots Adventure Co.

If you’re wondering what exactly I do for a living, you are not alone. I often wonder that myself. A good friend recently sent me a video blog by Marie Forleo entitled “How to Pursue All Your Passions Without Looking Flaky.” There, Forleo coins the term “Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur” which I feel describes me perfectly.

I am first and foremost a mother to my three biological sons and one foster daughter!

In my “spare time” I handle the social media marketing for several small businesses. I am also an Influencer. I adore working with passionate, dedicated business owners who are as excited as I am to be creative, and see growth and success.

I am a hobby photographer, and have turned this love into an ability to help create great content for businesses. It is a blast for me to come into a company and capture photos that I feel really get a hold of the culture and feel of the business.

I wouldn’t say I’m a hardcore adventurer, although I’d try all sorts of crazy trips, and I’m always working up to the next thing. My love of the outdoors, particularly hiking, runs deep. I am always trying to foster that in my own children as well.

I’m definitely not a fitness guru, but I work with some amazing professionals that assist me to be my best self. I have spent over a year now, working diligently on self-care in the form of fitness and healthier food choices.  I work with my trainer from Hangar 76 (Brian Hardy), my dojo – Okotoks Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and my Nutritional Consultant, Holly Doll of HD Holistic Wellness.

This journey led me to be a TEDx speaker in Peace River in January of 2019. You can find the link in my blogs to watch and get a better idea of how that all came about.

My kids might not always enjoy hiking like I do, but I know they understand there’s some kind of weird magic in it for me.  Often I catch them trying to figure out exactly what that is. Hiking is my favorite.  Over the years I have tried skating, skiing, snowboarding, canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, wake surfing, wakeboarding, and snowshoeing.  I think a lot of my hiking love has to do with my love of photography, and my desire to really soak it all in.  I love that I can do that at whatever pace I want.  Generally a slow one.  (I have really short legs.)

I also have a strange love for social media, blogging and sharing my story, in hopes that it may even inspire one person to get outside, to try something new, to enjoy life just a little bit more. I want all moms to know, that they can live their best life, and still be a great mom. In fact, it wasn’t until I really started to take care of myself, that I felt like I was doing parenting the justice it deserved.
