Erin Herman


Erin started exploring the world one country at a time with family, friends and groups. When she started working for Amazing Journeys in high school, Erin was responsible for answering phones and creating seating arrangements but as time passed, she was given the opportunity to lead excursions and then lead tours whenever her schedule permitted throughout college.

Erin graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Marketing from the Fisher College of Business. After college, she took positions in advertising agencies in both Atlanta and Chicago but her passion was still in travel. As the Marketing Director at Amazing Journeys, she now gets to promote the fabulous trips she has been telling everyone about for years.

Now with a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Illinois at Chicago, Erin still takes every travel opportunity that comes along. Her favorite part of traveling is exploring new locations in adventurous ways from climbing bridges in Australia, bungee jumping in Costa Rica and biking down volcanoes in Hawaii; the more adrenaline the better!

“I love being able to experience new sights, new adventures and new cultures. As each trip ends, I can’t wait to start the countdown to the next exciting destination!”
