Erica’s corporate career began in a manufacturing facility, where she quickly learned that standards didn’t usually exist and problems normally resulted in arguments instead of solutions. A natural “fixer”, Erica set up procedures and streamlined processes as she went. She moved between four companies doing everything from centralizing operations of company acquisitions to rolling out major software platforms. At each company she saw the same arguments, lack of trust and standards, and communication problems existed regardless of size or industry.
In the midst of building out a global supply chain from scratch for a hyper growth company in Philadelphia, she welcomed her second child. Aiming to break the glass ceiling while defying stereotypes and nurturing her kids, she ended up in the hospital just weeks after her second child turned one. Diagnosed with vestibular neuritis, a direct result from sleep deprivation of a 24/7 working environment, she experienced an unending episode of vertigo leaving her in the care of home healthcare and initially unable to walk or drive.
As she recovered, she left her job and instead decided to build her career in consulting-- so she could prioritize her health, be present for her children, and help multiple companies break through the process problems she witnessed.
Erica is now involved in dozens of companies in different capacities. From advising operations in the mid-market space to running a coaching program for up-and-coming consultants, she leverages her process background to help grow teams into solid companies and individuals into driven leaders.
She has her Master Certificate in Lean Enterprise Solutions and Certificates in Six Sigma Green Belt & Lean Six Sigma from Villanova University (2015). She holds her Bachelor's of Science from Virginia Tech (2007).
