In Memoriam

Erinn Knight (nee Cummins)





CALA staff mourn the passing of employee Erinn Knight.  Erinn passed away on April 10, 2018, after losing a brave fight to Metastatic Breast Cancer.  She was just 39 years old.

Erinn joined CALA in September 2004 as the Assessments Assistant before moving over to the Program Administrator role.  She was a great resource to CALA members, clients and staff on the requirements for PT and Accreditation.  Erinn was our first Healthy Workplace Champion, launching the effort in 2011.  Her favorite days at work were Halloween and April Fools when no one was exempt from her antics.  

In the fall of 2016 Erinn was returning to work after her maternity leave, when she was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer.  Like everything in her life, she met the challenge with her usual positive attitude, convinced that this was just a medical inconvenience that needed to be straightened out before her return.

Erinn leaves behind her husband and best friend Dave, and her 3-year-old son Jameson. She will be dearly missed by all of her CALA colleagues past and present.  For anyone interested, a Go Fund Me page has been set up in her memory by one of her close friends.
