GRAND RAPIDS, MI – West Michigan Tourist Association (WMTA) is excited to welcome their new Marketing Manager, Erin Murphy, to the team. 

A West Michigan native from Grand Rapids, Erin graduated from Hope College in 2018 with degrees in Communication and Business. Erin joins WMTA after three years on staff with the Alzheimer’s Association, working on local Walk to End Alzheimer’s events throughout West Michigan. She’s previously worked with a number of nonprofit organizations in marketing, fundraising, and event coordinating, but is excited to be joining the WMTA team to get to focus specifically on marketing support for the organization and its partners. 

Erin is passionate about the West Michigan area and is excited to be promoting amazing organizations, businesses, and events from across the region. “I love how you don’t have to drive very far to experience so many different amazing towns and communities! You’re never too far away from a lake and you can easily find whatever you’re looking for, from big city amenities and lots of activity to sweet small towns full of charm,” she shared about her love for West Michigan.

Erin says her favorite season in West Michigan would have to be summer. “A perfect summer day would include a day at Lake Michigan, enjoying the sunshine, warm sand, and water, and capping off the day with a beautiful sunset and some yummy ice cream,” she shared.

Erin will be working with press releases, trade shows, social media, newsletter creation, and editorial writing. For any questions or information regarding the West Michigan Tourist Association, she can be contacted at or (616) 245-2217 ext 107.
