Erik has devoted his career to empowering marginalized communities across the state of Connecticut and helping others see their own potential and power. Erik founded and is currently the CEO of ConnCAT, a nonprofit that provides job training programs designed to give unemployed and under-employed adults the skills needed to secure meaningful, well-paying jobs in health sciences and culinary professions, and the academic support required for success in those programs. We’re excited to welcome and learn from a local change maker committed to empowering the wider New Haven community!
