Erin Cooper


Name: Erin Cooper



Age: 35

Title: Director of Marketing- The Melting Pot Restaurants of Arizona

Married/Single: Married

Kids: Kennedy Elizabeth Cooper 2 yrs & Mason Abel Cooper 1 yr

City you live in: Chandler

I was born…

“I’m from the city in the Midwest. Best city in the whole wide, wide world”- Chicago!

My favorite thing about Arizona…

The smell right before it rains! Someone should bottle that and sell it as potpourri or a scented candle! Oh, and I can’t forget about Phoenix Comicon!!

I’m listening to…

My 2 year old daughter reciting “The Minions Movie,” while my son is erupting into laughter at the Minions on screen. My kids have seriously seen that movie 10,000 times already!  I’m so lucky to be able to work from home!

My family…

is my entire world! They are also amazing, because they never complain when I make them stop and pose for pictures! My two kids and myself are actors and models, so we’re used to the camera. I guess the real kudos here should be going to my husband!

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

JFK (the 35th president of The United States and my daughter’s namesake) hands down!

One thing I cannot live without… my phone!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a lawyer! Not just any lawyer though, a brilliant John Grisham type-criminal law attorney.

I’m inspired by…

my mother, Liz Bence-Ortega!  She is a young, strong, beautiful and talented woman that managed a 32 year long nursing career while raising two kids.  Let’s face it, her job’s not done and now she babysits and cares for my two children as well, while still working as a labor and delivery nurse!

The one person who motivates me is…

my husband, Kelly Cooper!  He gives me unconditional love, honesty, pep-talks when I need them and really just inspires by example! He’s an amazing father, husband, business man, cook, handyman- really just the definition of a true Renaissance Man!!

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

Finding a cure to all forms of cancer and making it available and affordable to everyone!!

The perfect day would be…

Receiving a phone call letting me know that one of my Melting Pot marketing campaigns just blew up and now everyone wants to come to The Melting Pot Restaurants in Arizona for dinner, while filming a movie or television show with my kids, while my husband works on his laptop from my dressing room!! Then and only then, will all be right with the world! 😉

My first job was…

Einstein Bagels.  Let me just say, waking up at 5am to make bagels is totally hard work!

My favorite escape… Sedona, AZ!

My life…

is almost perfect! I married an incredible man who is both smart and handsome. We have two gorgeous and healthy kids and we run a successful business. The only things missing are an Oscar and an Emmy from my mantelpiece, but there’s still plenty of time for that! ☺

I’m currently working on…

building a successful acting career, while raising a family and marketing for four restaurants.

Always… tell the people that are important to you, how much you love them!

Never… go to bed angry at anyone, for anything…it’s not worth it!

Favorite Quote… “Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.” – JFK

Biggest Dream…

Hearing my children tell me that I did a great job as a mother and that they always knew they were totally and unconditionally loved and supported!

My Pet Peeve(s)… Not responding to emails in a timely fashion!
