My name is Erin Creeks, and I'm the founder and CEO of MsIndependent. I was born and raised in Houston, TX, but truly feel that I found myself while living in Florida where I attended the University of Tampa. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life in college, nor did I know after graduating so I flirted with a number of options until I discovered a passion for fitness. I worked as a Personal Trainer for 7 years, and a Certified Pilates Instructor for 9 years. In that time I also became a competitive bodybuilder. I so don't miss those 4am workouts.
You could say I've always had the entrepreneurial spirit, which I misinterpreted as a lack of direction in life. I've always been artistically inclined, imaginative, and a dreamer, but I couldn't figure out how to make those pieces fit into a career. In the early days of MsIndependent I had no idea that all of my gifts, skills, and life experience would finally meld, and create not only a dream job, but a passion project that would become my life. I consider MsIndependent to be one of the best gifts life has ever given me, and I can't wait to share that gift with all of you.
