Erin Huang was hired to serve as the Indiana state director for The HSUS in January 2013. 

Before coming to The HSUS, Huang worked as a legal counsel at an insurance company, and she spent nearly five years as a deputy prosecuting attorney in Indianapolis.

She spent two and a half of her years at the prosecutor's office as its animal cruelty prosecutor, handling exclusively animal cruelty cases and working alongside The HSUS to strengthen Indiana's animal cruelty statutes.

While attending law school, Huang was a charter member and co-founder of Student Animal Legal Defense Fund for Valparaiso University School of Law.

Huang has been involved with animal welfare issues for several years and has worked to strengthen protections for animals, as well as defeat dangerous legislation that would undermine the safety and welfare of animals and workers in Indiana (anti-whistleblower legislation). Since she began working with HSUS, Huang has worked with several other organizations to build strong coalitions and partnerships to improve the lives of animals in her state.

Huang holds B.A. degrees in psychology and criminal justice from Indiana University, as well as a J.D. from Valparaiso University School of Law. Additionally, she sits on the executive council of the Animal Law Committee of the Indiana State Bar Association.
