Erin Reifsnyder, MA, MHC
Board Member, Restaurant After Hours
Erin is a mental health advocate with nearly a decade of experience in the hospitality industry. With backgrounds that range from serving in restaurants to assisting in VIP concierge services, she has pursued a diverse career path that has always centered on human service.
Upon moving to New York City, she worked as a concierge and guest experience manager at popular boutique hotels across Manhattan and Brooklyn. Through her experiences in guest facing roles she was inspired to return to her academic roots, graduating from Columbia University with a master’s in counseling psychology. Since then, she has counseled individuals and groups from a variety of backgrounds, and specializes in Latinx psychology and Spanish language therapy. She believes that access to culturally adaptive mental health care is essential for healing and that all are deserving of that care.
Erin is passionate about destigmatizing mental health in the hospitality community and increasing access to fundamental health services. With a keen interest in the intersection of hospitality and mental health access, she is excited to join the Restaurant After Hours team, with the ultimate goal of improving the mental health of our industry.
