Eric graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh with a bachelor’s degree in Human Services and Leadership. Throughout college and after graduating, Eric worked in marketing and sales for a total of six years. Eric stepped out of that field to pursue his desire to work in the non-profit sector. Eric’s passion of helping others and giving back is evident from his charity events and volunteer work on a local, state, national and international level. Eric is the recipient of the 2018 InBusiness Magazine 40 under 40 award.

Interested in learning more about the Non-Profit sector? Eric will share with you how his experience helping others started in middle school through Jump Rope For Heart, continued into college starting his own fundraising event that has raised over $135,000 for those with Muscular Dystrophy, and after college ending up traveling to Haiti three times to help build and finish a Medical Clinic. All these experiences has led him to become a Marketing Director for a Non-Profit over the last four years and then recruited by a larger Non-Profit to continue to sustain and grow their programs making an impact on Burn Survivors, Fire Fighters, and Communities.
