Erika was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and moved to Southern California after marrying the love of her life in 2008.  Erika loves spending time with family and friends, shopping, fashion, and dancing the night away.  Growing up, Erika spent most of her holidays and summer breaks in Louisiana where she picked up what her friends call a little Southern Charm.  Events have been a part of Erika’s life ever since she can remember and she credits her creativity and love for life from her parents, who both instilled in her great values, character, and integrity.  Erika brings a fusion of the West Coast edge in her creativity with a little Southern Charm and has never met a stranger.  She obtained her certification in Wedding Consulting from Penn Foster College as a Certified Professional Bridal Consultant and graduated as Valedictorian from her High School class and holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from Washington University in Accountancy and also an MBA.  She has over 15 years of corporate experience and has managed multiple clients with over $1.5 billion dollars in annual spending.  She is a member of the Association of Bridal Consultants, holding the position of Co-Director for the Inland Empire Chapter, and is Membership Director for the Orange County Association of Bridal Consultants.  Erika loves to learn, and she is also passionate about volunteering with many non-profit organizations such as Relay for Life.
