Erin Cross

Erin has been married to her husband, Austin, since 2012. The couple have a daughter that we affectionately refer to as Princess Adleigh. There are days, if you stop by our office, that you might get to meet our little Princess.

Erin and Austin are some of our community’s “up and coming” entrepreneurs as well. So, if you miss Erin here at The Vaughan Agency, you might catch her at Sheer Illusions in Middleport, since she and her husband own that business as well as other commercial and residential rental units.

Besides helping people with their insurance needs, managing a home with a baby, running a hair salon, and more, you might find Erin helping with a local charity, supporting our youth ventures or you may just catch her mowing their acres of grass surrounding their home.
