Erica was born in New York, raised in New Jersey and found her way “down South” to attend the University of Virginia in 1994. She’s a proud WAHOO and mom to a future UVA graduate in 2022. Her immediate family of 4 growing up was small but felt huge amongst the love and support of countless cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, foster-siblings and friends. Erica has been an active member of our parish community since 2002. She was a Catechist for our Little Christians from 2004-2016 leading our sweet 3-year-olds to know how special they are to Him. During the summers of 2010-2016, you may have seen Erica dressed as a Western gal, Beach Life Guard or Safari Guide as our Vacation Bible School Director. And during Christmas of 2008-2015, where there was a 3-year-old angel or live “baby Jesus”, there you would find Erica leading our Nativity play for our preschool & elementary-aged children and Celebration of the Family Day of fun. Erica’s passion for service extends to the food insecure, through her work as a Food Ministry Team Member in 2011-12 and then a Team Leader in 2013-2017. She is the loving mother of two teenage girls and three young sons. Erica “Walks by Faith” sharing her journey as a foster mother and believer in the village that it takes to raise a child. She is excited by the opportunity that this new role brings, to personally grow closer to Christ and bring others to the joy that she knows He offers.
