Setting an example while sustaining our forests

Environment

Meet Erin Herrin, area harvesting manager for Georgia-Pacific’s building products operations in East Texas.  In her job, Erin works with family forest landowners who sell their timber to GP, providing information on how to best manage their property, protect streams and water quality, and reforest after harvesting.

As a woman in a predominantly male profession, Erin is also an example to girls who want to pursue a career in forestry.  She encourages them to continuously push themselves.  “Don’t let self-doubt get the better of you and look for opportunities to progress yourself in your career, even the opportunities you don’t feel like you’re capable of.”
