Erin Ziering grew up on a small organic Christmas tree farm in Ohio. She studied to become a Nurse at Youngstown State University and worked as a Cardiac Nurse at the Cleveland Clinic. Travel Nursing brought her to Los Angeles and while here, she met her husband, Ian Ziering. They married shortly after and now have two beautiful daughters. Erin still occasionally works as a nurse in clinics, but dedicates most of her time to her family. Erin and Ian are beekeepers and gardeners, and their focus is on teaching their children to take care of the environment and community.
