As the Family Network Liaison, Erin oversees volunteers in both the Parent Ambassador and Social Media Ambassador programs.
Erin and her husband Leo live outside of Seattle, WA, and are parents to Eloise and Leonel. Erin began fundraising for DSF soon after her Leonel’s Dravet syndrome diagnosis in 2016. She has been a volunteer Parent Ambassador for the West region with the DSF Family Network since 2017 and helped bring Day of Dravet to Seattle in 2018. Erin is an active PTA member as a Special Education Representative at her children’s elementary school. She earned her M.A. in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Western Washington University and is a speech-language pathologist who works part-time at a local pediatric therapy clinic.
The Reoyo Family enjoys various outdoor activities and traveling within the Pacific Northwest, cheering for the Seattle Sounders, Seahawks, and Kraken. Erin is an avid reader (via audiobooks) and has recently started exploring alcohol ink painting for creative expression.
