Erica is a native to the Santa Ynez Valley. After her education and career took her around the country and even the globe, she has returned to the Central Coast to raise her daughter Jacqueline. Her career has included working as a Director of Development for Chico State, leading Diversity and Inclusion initiatives for National FFA, and teaching for the University of Kentucky, including a course in France and Switzerland. Most people don’t know she is also a featured artist, with her paintings showcased in a permanent display at Chico State and in downtown Indianapolis. She is a certified fundraiser currently working alongside community philanthropists to raise $4.7 million for renovations for the Solvang Festival Theater. Erica is a beautiful person on the inside and out and we are thrilled to have her on our team sharing her talents.
