Erin Nelson || Chapter Leader
I came to Texas fresh out of graduate school, in 2007, and I never dreamed I would start a family and set down roots. While it was the job at Blinn College that
brought me here, at this time in my life, I am first a mother and second a college English teacher. I live in Brenham, TX with my 2.5 year old son, his father, and our black lab, Roxxy.
In my experience, part of being a mother is teaching my son how to give back to
the community that brought his father and I together, and which is the only home
he knows. After hearing about Box of Balloons through my friends and family back
in Wisconsin, I knew it was something that I had to help bring to Texas. I also knew
it was the perfect way to get my son involved in a good cause. Birthdays are something very special at our house, regardless of age, but it is my goal to help ensure that all children experience the excitement and love they deserve on their very special day of birth.
