Fitness and swimsuit model Erin Ellington is a woman of many passions. From small town Iowa homecoming queen, to the cover of fitness magazines, to motherhood and makeup artist, she exudes a desire for excellence in whatever path she chooses. A family ancestry of French, Dutch, German and Native American descent, Erin originally set out to work in the field of social services. A graduate of Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa with a Bachelors in Psychology and Sociology, Erin decided a change of pace was needed after working as a youth crisis counselor in Des Moines, Iowa and became a flight attendant based out of Kansas City, Missouri. It was on an excursion to New York that Erin was discovered by a prestigious fashion and fitness photographer, who put her on the map.
She quickly became established as a successful model, appearing in swimsuits on the pages of popular men’s fitness and bodybuilding magazines for many years before officially stepping away from her work as a model.
