A graduate of Georgetown University, Erin Levi earned her bachelor's degree in French with a minor in Culture and Politics. She split her junior year abroad between Hanoi, Vietnam and Milan, Italy. Erin also enjoyed a 4-month stint as an intern at the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See in Rome, Italy before she continued her pursuit of higher education at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. Erin won the prestigious Ransome Scholarship Trust and earned a Master of Letters in Middle East and Central Asian Security Studies. She also spent one month living with a family and studying in Samarkand, Uzbekistan with the University of Torino's Samarkand Summer School.

Erin began her career at DQMPR in 2007 as a Sales & Marketing Coordinator, promoting the Province of Québec at consumer events and corporate industry conferences. After assisting the campaign to promote Québec City's 400th anniversary in 2008 in the US press, it became clear that her talents lay within media relations, and so her position adjusted to reflect this new interest. Erin has arranged hundreds of press trips to Québec and has personally escorted several as well. Her knowledge of French has proven useful in managing the quarterly reports for the client, and her superior networking skills have allowed her cultivate relationships with the top travel media. Since 2010, Erin has also been handling cruise industry development along the Saint Lawrence River, promoting Quebec's new ports of call in the US to the media and at major cruise industry events, such as Cruise3Sixty and CruiseWorld.
- Pitched the executive editor of Bicycling Magazine a story on cycling and eating along the Flavor Trail in Charlevoix and, after assisting his visit to Quebec in October 2011, landed an 7-page feature story with photos in the March 2012 issue. The client was very pleased as one of its main prerogatives this year is to promote cycling.
