Meet Glory Days Apparel Brand Ambassador Erin!
Originally from Rome.... New York, not Italy. Erin moved to Charlotte in August 2014. After a short lived move to DC (roughly 10 months) Erin couldn’t stay away from CLT so she moved back.
Erin went to school at St. Bonaventure University in western NY and played lacrosse there as well. (Go Bonnies!) It seems like 50% of the St. Bonaventure population now lives here in Charlotte but she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Erin took that athletic prowess she had playing lacrosse at St. Bonaventure and turned it in to a great way to empower others. She's a health and fitness blogger and “influencer” and a NASM certified personal trainer. You can follow her on IG @queencitysweat or head over to her website where she shares recipes, workouts and everything in between (www.queencitysweat.com).
We first got to meet Queen City Sweat in person at Front Porch Sundays. Here's how Erin explains it, "I met JD at Front Porch Sundays - I went there solely to play with the adoptable puppies but stumbled upon the GD tent and it was history." One of her favorite Glory Days Apparel shirts is the super soft Cat Scratch Hoodie that you can even see her modeling on our site.
We like to ask our Ambassadors about some of their favorite local spots and things to do. Here's what Erin likes to do around Charlotte, "This might not sound like a hobby to most people but I absolutely love working out. My life consists of bopping around different gyms and studios throughout Charlotte and hitting up lots of coffee shops in between. My favorite workout in Charlotte is MADabolic and my favorite coffee place (really hard to choose) is HEX, however, I love hanging out at Not Just Coffee at the Atherton Mill. I also really enjoy cooking, baking and cleaning (I’m really domesticated)."
"Favorite local spot to eat - This is a hard one for me! I have so many favorites depending on what kind of food I’m in the mood for. My current obsession is Roots. Their food is fresh and locally-sourced food. However, Living Kitchen is another one of my go-to’s!"
"Favorite local beer/wine/etc - I’m not a huge beer drinker (call me crazy) but I do love a good glass of wine from Craft or Dilworth Tasting Room from time to time!"
We also try to get a little dirt on our Ambassadors. Erin's "dirt" is one of our favorites, "I don’t really have ONE embarrassing story that sticks out in my mind because I pretty much embarrass myself on a regular basis. However, I do have two conjoined pinky toes on my right foot. And my initials are ET…so there’s that."
Erin, AKA Queen City Sweat, is doing a lot of great things for the people of Charlotte and we're excited to see how she continues to grow her brand. We're thrilled to have her a part of our team. We choose our Ambassadors in large part for their pesonality and what they contribute to our great city and Erin is making a huge impact. She's going to do big things and not just with our brand!
