Say the name Erin Brockovich, and you think strong, tough, and stubborn. Erin is all that, and more. She is a modern-day “David” who loves a good brawl with today’s “Goliaths” and thrives on being the voice for those who don’t know how to yell.

Erin was the average divorced single mother trying to make a living until she crossed paths with lawyer Ed Masry. Erin began working for Masry as a file clerk after he represented her on an auto accident case. While organizing papers for a pro-bono suit, Erin found medical records that would explode into the largest direct-action lawsuit with Pacific Gas & Electric, ultimately forcing the utility giant to pay out the largest toxic tort injury settlement in U.S. history.

The story and later film, starring Julia Roberts, made “Erin Brockovich” a household name. Over time, Erin realized she could use her notoriety to spread positive messages of personal empowerment and encourage others to stand up and make a difference.

After conquering all forms of media, including hosting several TV shows, Erin then dominated the publishing world with her New York Times Business Bestseller, “Take It From Me: Life’s A Struggle, But You Can Win.” She has also written two fiction novels, “Rock Bottom” and “Hot Water.” Her latest release, “Superman’s Not Coming: Our National Water Crisis and What We the People Can Do About It,” drew wide media attention before its publication.

Erin is currently involved in numerous environmental projects worldwide as President of Brockovich Research & Consulting, and is one of the most requested speakers on the international lecture circuit. Erin is a true American hero whose icon status and “stick-to-it-iveness” fuels her determination to expose injustice and lend her voice to those who do not have one.
