If you’ve called our office, or stopped by, chances are you’ve met our multi-talented operations specialist, Erin Ward. She does a little bit of everything, from scheduling meetings to spearheading some of our marketing efforts. She’s in charge of many of our basic office operations, and assists with client-related work.
A central Florida native, Erin immediately connected with the culture at FMC and was honored to join the team. A University of Central Florida Alumni, with a Bachelor’s in Social Work, Erin’s first job out of college was at a local police department as a 911 dispatcher. After working 12 hour night shifts and discovering her co-dependence on coffee, Erin realized her passion to help others and build relationships was most effective via face to face contact and normal working hours.
And though Erin’s background is in social work, it’s a background that incorporated an element of financial advice and planning. During an internship related to social work, she taught budgeting classes and became well-versed in much of Dave Ramsey’s “get out of debt” financial advice and insight.
When not at the office, Erin enjoys volunteering with local non-profits, writing letters to friends around the globe, and spending time with her family, especially her notably adorable nieces and nephew. She also loves spending time outdoors with her dog Maple. Whether that’s at the beach or a local spring, Erin is determined to catch a (small) alligator in the wild and cross it off her bucket list.
