ABOUT ERIN VAN DER MEER

ERIN VAN DER MEER is an Australian writer based in New York City who covers news, travel and trends in North America.

Erin’s tendency to overthink drives her loved-ones crazy, but it usually leads to a story. Recent examples include the rise of sending Seamless vouchers to people who are grieving, trying to make wellness fun again in Los Angeles, the importance of a women-only ocean pool in the #MeToo era, and why hotels can trigger your existential dread

Before leaving Sydney, Australia in 2015 to travel the world and ending up in New York, Erin was a journalist on-staff at some of Australia’s most popular publications, including CLEO and DOLLY magazines and Nine.com.au

If there’s tumbleweeds on her Instagram and/or Twitter account, it means she’s on a break from social media because she’s a) working hard on her novel, b) on a wifi-free adventure or c) going through an ‘Instagram is destroying society’ phase. Maybe all three. BRB.
