The Southern California native graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Tex. with a degree in Convergence Journalism and a minor in Spanish in May 2013.
As a student, Erica held a broadcast internship with WFAA Channel 8 News. Erica was also chosen as a top twenty contestant among the nation by Fox News Channel to compete for a Fox News Channel Junior Reporter position.
She began her journalism career at SMU by working as a sports writer for the "Daily Mustang." She then went on to become the sports editor associate for "The Daily Campus." She anchored, wrote and produced for SMU-TV's "The Daily Update" and served as News Director for a semester.
Outside of the classroom, Erica had the privilege to study international media in London and in Barcelona. She also had the opportunity to cover the George W. Bush presidential center opening at SMU.
Although Erica grew up along the west coast, she has fallen in love with the state of Texas. She loves a good pair of cowboy boots and sweet tea. She is constantly looking for an indoor soccer arena or good running spots!
Erica is thrilled to be living and working in Central Texas. If you see Erica out and about, please say hello!
