Springboro grad making it big in L.A.

Erin Tillman is a single life consultant and dating expert living in Los Angeles.

The Springboro grad has made it big out west. She hosts The Dating Advice Girl Radio Show on 99.3 KCLA FM, and wrote “The Dating Guidebook: Tips for Living a Happy and Healthy Single Life Without Losing Yourself in the Dating Process.” And yes, she’s happily single.

“No one gets anywhere without a plan. The biggest things that have gotten me to where I am today are networking, working smart and hard, and not being afraid to try new things,” said Tillman. “I’ve made it a priority to keep learning new things, set concrete career and life goals, and keep expanding my social circles.”

It seems as if attending Springboro High School was a positive step in the right direction.

“My classmates and I were very lucky to get both a good education and have access to a variety of arts, extracurricular, and cultural programs. This variety of knowledge and experiences has prepared me in so many ways and has given me the skills to mesh both business and the arts,” said Tillman. “I am very grateful that I was able to grow up in a school system that encouraged both traditional and non-traditional learning.”

You can’t be immersed in more non-traditional culture than LA. But it seems to serve this Midwest gal very well indeed.

“I moved to L.A. to work in the entertainment industry, specifically television and radio. Even though you can still work in these fields and not live in California, there is definitely more entertainment-based work to be had when you’re in the TV and film capital,” said Tillman.

Although she’s been transplanted out west, there are still certain aspects of her old stomping grounds that bring her back.

“Every time I’m back in Ohio, I tend to relax…it’s kind of like a retreat. Though I love living in a big, busy city, I also like returning to Ohio to enjoy the slower pace of life in the Midwest,” said Tillman. It’s always great to visit with friends and family when in Ohio. Familiar surroundings keep me grounded, and make me smile.”

She’ll be back soon among these familiar surroundings. She’s having a book signing at 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 25 at

Barnes & Noble, 2720 Towne Dr. #200 in Beavercreek.
