Born in Canton, Erika lived in downtown Detroit while attending Wayne State University. She has lived in Traverse City for almost two years and absolutely loves it. She loves that she can walk down the street and people actually say hello! She also loves that 90% of the fun events that are always going on are for a good cause. Family means the most to Erika. Specifically, her mother has always been her backbone. The four-hour drive to visit them means nothing.
Erika enjoys figure skating, having competed for about ten years. She loves drawing/artwork, dancing, writing, running outside and just spending time with friends and family. She considers playing with her cat a hobby, too! She calls herself a "huge ham" and loves the camera. She is fascinated by different kinds of people and she loves to make a difference. Three reasons why she enjoys her job and her show on ABC 29&8 so much. She is also excited to make a difference for Michigan Blood by helping to raise funds, which would in turn raise awareness to give blood and save lives.
