Meet the Mountain Mamas


Erin Howell

Erin was born in North Georgia to a military family, with whom she moved a good majority of her childhood. At 15 she moved to Montana and knew this would always be her home. Erin is a mother of two, a daughter and a son, both born in Missoula. After high school she found her calling in the kitchen. She worked for several wonderful high-end establishments and enjoyed almost every minute of it, but the mountains called, and she stepped away from the kitchen.

When the prospect of starting a business was mulled over in depth she and Sierra decided a good route for her was in the rescue field, to complement the parts that Sierra was covering. After enrolling with Aerie Backcountry Medicine to get her certification as an EMT with a Wilderness emphasis, she came across an ad for volunteer firefighters. Being that EMT was something completely out of her realm, she decided to investigate, from which she found this was a great way to get experience before starting class. She fell in love with it and is currently a volunteer firefighter for the East Missoula Rural Fire Department and after getting her license to practice in the state of Montana, works for Missoula Emergency Services Incorporated.

She and her kids enjoy hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, art, good food, soccer, camping, and traveling. She loves God, her kids and her family, extended family, fire family, and her church family.
