Ned Erickson has over twenty years of experience in helping men and women discover who they were created to be and what that might mean in terms of purpose and calling.
In particular, he has worked for Young Life, an outreach ministry to high school students. He has also worked as a consultant for I-55 Associates in Denver, Colorado where he became Vice President. Most recently, Ned serves as the Founding Director of the Winston-Salem Fellows, a leadership and professional development program for men and women who are transitioning from college to career.
He is also the author of four books: a memoir, Falling Into Love: How an Average Guy Got the Girl of His Dreams; a novel, Clay (A novel about finding purpose); and two non-fiction books called Get This: the answers to life’s final exam and The Reason: why you were made.
