Erica moved to Frederick County in 2004 from Minneapolis, Minnesota to be closer to family. While in Minneapolis, Erica served on the Fulton Neighborhood Safety Committee raising awareness for a safe and walkable living environment. She holds a Business Administration degree from Ohio State University and later attended Frederick Community College to become a Registered Nurse. She has worked at Frederick Health Hospital since 2010 and appreciates being able to serve the community with the growing health system. Outside of work, she enjoys hiking, biking, kayaking, and supporting local businesses. Erica spent many hours from 2020 to 2022 vaccinating staff, providers, volunteers, and community members with Covid vaccines. She especially enjoys spending time with her husband and 2 young adult sons. She has been a member of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation since 2015 and has been active with Envision Frederick County since 2021 when she decided to devote her time to Climate Change feeling that the health of the planet must come first before anything else. Erica is excited to serve on the Envision Frederick County Board advocating for our county’s sustainability through advocacy, education, and an increasingly engaged community.
