Erica takes joy in calling Colorado Springs home. She delights in the many deer who visit her yard daily and the gorgeous hiking trails nearby. She and her husband are happily raising their blended family together, which definitely keeps them busy. With 5 children between the two of them (3 boys and 2 girls), they are almost, but not quite, The Brady Bunch. Erica received her BA in Public Relations and Marketing and uses her expertise as the Resources Coordinator for Co Springs Mom Collective.
