About Erin Potts

erin potts 2017Name: Erin Potts

How long have you been with VHA? 2 years

Tell us about yourself: I carry a degree in Business Administration with a minor in Public Relations and I come with several years of bookkeeping experience. I had planned for a career following my work during college in Sports Information, working on player bios, press releases and stats.  As it often happens, even the best laid plans can change. That change brought me to Minnesota 12 years ago to begin my diverse career path. Over that decade, I’ve worked for an Office Supply Company, an Event and Tour Company, a Hardware Manufacturers Representative Company and a chain of Assisted Living Facilities. I’ve worn many hats in my past positions and bring experience in Marketing, Customer Service, Human Resources, Warehouse Management and Event Planning. The single aspect of all my jobs that has remained constant, and that I greatly enjoy, is Business and Financial Management.

I have been married for 11 years to my college sweetheart Michael. We have two bright and beautiful children that keep us running and laughing constantly. Our family rounded out with two loving fur babies as well, our cats Lady Kay and Lucas Mathew. Even though I am a born and raised Wisconsinite, we have made our home here in Minnesota over the past 12 years, but do not fear Im still a Buckey fan and luckily my kids are too!

What's one interesting fact about you that very few know? My brother and I are exactly 4 years apart in age with birthdays on the 12th and 14th, his children are exactly 3 years apart with birthdays a day apart, and my children are exactly 3 years apart with birthdays a day apart as well.

If you could have one super power, what would it be and why? To move at the speed of light so I could still do everything I want to do even when I don't have enough time.

What's one thing you like about working at VHA? I love meeting and working with all the great people I have come to know here at VHA both our staff and our awesome members!
