With a personality to match her hair color, Erin Stanley has been closely associated with the Airways Freight family for most of her life. She was hired on in January 2001, with the thought in mind that the position she took would be a place holder job. Seventeen years later, she learned much more than she ever thought, and can’t imagine working anywhere else!
Growing up in Fayetteville, Arkansas, Erin’s parents wanted her to see as much of the United States as possible, so they travelled frequently. They vacationed at Gulf Shores every Christmas, and every spring break, they would discover a new place to explore. Erin spent a lot of summers living on a boat and learned to sail at a very young age.
After being in and out of each other’s lives for over thirty years, Erin married her childhood sweetheart, Shane. Shane is a paramedic and firefighter, and he has been a quintessential part of her life ever since. Erin has been a stepmother to Shane’s daughter for the past ten years and they are now proudly sending her off to John Brown University in the fall.
Erin loves to travel with her husband Shane, they visit Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and Las Vegas whenever they get a chance. When at home, they love to ride motorcycles and she and her father enjoy attending all the Arkansas Razorback football games. Something they have been doing together for the past ten years.
One of Erin’s favorite past-times is reading. She is fascinated with true crime mysteries, and her all-time favorite book is Helter Skelter by Vincent Bugliosi.
Erin is inherently influenced by her Mother. Her can-do attitude and the way she handles any stressful situation head-on with a smile is inspiring. She strives to be at least half as tough and considerate as her Mom.
Erin is loyal and honest, vocal and hardworking and she might even be a little goofy, but she is always a force to be reckoned with. And Airways Freight is glad she “held her place” in the International Ocean Department.
