Erin Galloway


My entire career has focused on behavior change and how small choices add up to have a big impact.

I hold a Master's degree in Child and Human Development and I've served on the leadership team of opening and operating two innovative early childhood education centers for both The Ohio State University and Johns Hopkins University, along with launching unprecedented international service-learning initiatives for both institutions.


After moving away two times, life keeps bringing me back to Ohio. Now I am building a beautiful blended family with a childhood friend and have more time to be present as a full-time entrepreneur.

Lillian Jane


She is the purpose behind Habitize Publishing LLC and reads every publication before it is submitted to print. 

As a struggling early reader, she was open to spending countless hours in the library and at home learning to read. She was drawn to books focused on optimism, diversity, overcoming challenges, and handling difficult emotions but the topics of traditional reading interventions were not "clicking". So we decided to create our own tools! 

Together, Erin and Lily started to design characters, habit trackers, writing journals, learning activities, etc that ultimately lead to her reading ABOVE GRADE LEVEL and thriving as an independent reader. 

She reminds us all to not underestimate what a curious mind can do!
