MEET Erica

Erica grew up in Tacoma, WA, a city she loves and enjoys going back to. Erica has always been active in sports, fitness, and pursuing health, but it was her diagnoses of Type 1 diabetes at age 16 that sparked her true passion for nutrition and health. She wanted to find the best way of eating to manage her diabetes but was confused by so many different diets, ideas, and opinions. That led to her asking questions, staying curious, and finding the path that worked for her.

After high school, Erica worked as a bank teller while getting her Associate Degree at Tacoma Community College. She worked her way up in the company for 10 years, always having nutrition in the back of her mind as a possible future endeavor. Finally, Erica quit her bank job to pursue what she really wanted—a career in nutrition. That's when she enrolled at Bastyr University, the Nation's leading alternative medicine school, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics.

Since attending Bastyr, Erica trained to become a CrossFit Coach and continues to help people reach their health and wellness goals through both exercise and nutrition. She has worked in exercise nutrition with athletes, weight loss programs for diabetics, and clinical support for tube-fed patients. Also active in the community, Erica is an advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and volunteers at a summer camp for children with diabetes.

Erica joined Persona as a nutritionist in August 2018. She loves assisting customers with their personalized regimens and plays an important role in the research and development of nutritional supplements. In her free time, Erica can be found at the gym or relaxing at home with her husband and dog. And if she's not cooking new recipes in her kitchen, she's out on a food adventure in search of her new favorite meal.
