Erin Simmons

Photo of Erin Simmons of Alternatives to Violence of the PalouseErin hails from the rugged backwoods of the Salmon River wilderness, where she was raised by a herd of benevolent sheep. Despite this unfortunate upbringing she eventually made her way to civilization where she attempted to conform to the unfamiliar culture. Her adventures include completing a bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Idaho and subsequently taking a position as the Sexual Assault Advocate at Alternatives to Violence in the Moscow office. When she’s not working, she’s bounding through the forests, forging rivers, and knitting wool scarves.
