Erika was born and spent most of her childhood in Southern California before moving to the Chicagoland area during high school. It was during high school and time spent volunteering at the National Runaway Switchboard and the Peer Helpers program that she realized how much she enjoyed working with people who were struggling with difficult problems and situations. Erika went to Bradley University, where she graduated with a Bachelors of Social Work and a minor in Women’s Studies. After college, she got married and moved to Northwest Indiana where she worked with adolescents for several years before starting her own family. After her children began school, Erika began working and volunteering in various capacities before finding her home at Fair Haven as a Victim Advocate. At Fair Haven, she is able to live out her belief that there is hope in even the hardest of times, and there is a path to recovery for people who are suffering. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her children, watching them participate in their various activities, and volunteering with their scouting organizations. She also enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing with her dog, cooking, and reading. Erika is happy to have found her place at Fair Haven!
