Erin Saul has spent her career working in a variety of direct service and advocacy organizations. Prior to joining GreenLight Fund in 2023, Erin worked at the Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, where she led a coalition of nearly 50 schools, healthcare and early childhood organizations working to reduce the incidence and impact of early childhood trauma in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Her experience working across sectors to promote equity and identifying and implementing evidence-based interventions, along with her deep passion for ensuring positive outcomes for children and families, make her one of Cincinnati’s foremost leaders in community engagement.

Erin is a graduate of Denison University with a B.A. in Political Science and finished her Masters of Business Leadership and Innovation (MBLI) degree at Northern Kentucky University’s Haile College of Business in 2022. Erin earned an executive certificate from Georgetown University’s School-Justice Partnerships and Diversion Pathways Program in 2019, and she serves on the University of Cincinnati  Center for Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation leadership team.  Erin was recognized for her impact in the community when she was named Cincinnati Children’s Young Professional of the Year in 2021, and again in 2022 when the Nancy and David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center honored her with the inaugural Upstander Award. She is a proud member of the YWCA Rising Stars Class of 2020 and uses her non-profit board equity certification as a board member for Mission2Move, a local organization that brings mindful movement programming to public preschools.

Erin is passionate about the outdoors and enjoys hiking in any weather! When she can’t travel to the mountains of Maine or New Hampshire, she enjoys taking her sister for hikes around Cincinnati with the help of her custom hiking backpack (thanks to the amazing volunteers at May We Help) or meeting up with Luke5Adventures, a Cincinnati-based hiking program for people with disabilities.
