Hi, I’m Erin Rochelle Cole. I’m a writer, performer, creator, the Founder and Artistic Director of Art With A Heartbeat (AWAH). AWAH is a collective of artists, strategic thinkers and planners who breathe life into moments and messages through performance, written and visual arts. 

I’m was born and raised in Memphis, TN. Home is where my love for the arts was cultivated through Germantown High School’s Production (Poplar Pike Playhouse) and Television Program (GHS-TV). I received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from the University of Missouri- Columbia, where I also continued my studies in theatre. I combine my communications degree with 15+ years of theatre and performance experience to lead a team in producing experiences that make events and messages life- changing. 

I worked as a Conference Director and Event Planner for 8 years. Currently, I work as the Director of Operations at Downtown Church. Through this work experience, I have developed a keen understanding of the nuances of events. This gives me the upper hand in working creative elements into the natural flow of a program. I hope you entrust me to help make your next project or event one to remember. Please take a moment to check the video page for clips of past events. All content is original.
