Erin Pac began bobsled as a brakeman in 2002, joining the World Cup team to push for drivers Bakken, Rohbock, and Sprung.

During the 2005-2006 season, she learned to drive and made her World Cup driving debut just one year later during the 2006-2007 season. Pac continues to climb in the international rankings, recently claiming a bronze medal at the inaugural World Cup race in Whistler, Canada.
