16-year Slalom consultant Erin Aten doesn’t care about job titles or climbing the ladder. She cares about helping people solve problems and be whoever they want to be.

When Erin Aten greets me at the door of her house on an 85-degree Tuesday night, she’s wearing workout shorts, a tank, and sneakers. And she’s sweaty.
On summer days like this, when the weather in Seattle isn’t dark and rainy, Erin has been running to her client’s office (one of Seattle’s most iconic companies that we can’t name) and walking home every day. 10 miles roundtrip.
“When Erin does something, she goes all in,” said Donna Riddell, Erin’s long-time friend and Slalom colleague.
