A quarter life crisis started it all

Hey there! My name is Erin and I started MsIndependent in July of 2010. At the time I was a woman in her mid-20's, newly single, no hobbies, few friends, and no GPS. After the final curtain closed on my on again off again 2 year relationship, I found myself alone and totally unaware of the Houston social scene. I went to school out of state, and although I grew up in Houston, I came back as a stranger. Now without the boyfriend around that fact became painfully obvious.

I discovered meetup groups and quickly joined dozens of clubs but never found my tribe. As an experiment, and last attempt at being social, I created my own meetup group and named it after my favorite song at the time, Neyo's Ms. Independent. The group started out as a club for single women who, like me, were watching their friends get married, have kids, and had found that they were displaced. Now 6 years and over 300 events later, MsIndependent has become an outlet for all women to connect, explore, and expand what's possible in life. My life started when I tried something new and got out of my own way. I hope that with every event I plan, someone else can say the same.
