Erin Reitz

Senior Manager of Content

Erin’s (she/they) work spans our marketing, content, and product teams, and focuses on chiseling Second Breath’s mission and messaging into accessible and meaningful content that engages and expands the Second Breath community.



A friend first encouraged Erin to check out Second Breath, though it was several years before the timing aligned and Erin actually followed through. She participated in some of Second Breath’s foundational courses and was deeply impacted by what she learned. Eventually, Erin offered her skills in design, communications, and digital engagement to the organization, working on various freelance projects before coming on board full time in 2021.



Prior to joining the Second Breath staff, Erin worked for several years on the digital content team at Our State magazine, where she trekked across North Carolina with camera in hand, capturing the best things about her home state including (but not limited to) breweries, hidden hiking spots, and folk musicians. After Our State, Erin served as the Communications Manager at the Campus Y, UNC Chapel Hill’s student-driven hub for social justice.



Erin lives with her wife and puppy in Durham, NC and holds an ever-deepening love for the people, places, and spirit of the South. She enjoys discussing the intersection between spirituality and psychology, LGBTQ+ representation, dogs, live music, memoirs, and the newest binge-worthy show on Netflix.



Erin loves that Second Breath’s teachings and products mean something different to every single person who engages with them. About Second Breath, Erin says, “Second Breath offered me breathing room I didn’t know I needed. The courses, workshops, and breath work retreats supported me as I journeyed through reconstructing and reclaiming my understanding of God and my relationship with Source.”
