Erica has been a recognized leader in the Peer to Peer space for nearly 20 years. A relentless advocate for women and girls, she proudly serves on the Board for Girls on the Run. As Managing Partner and COO of a women-owned event production and fundraising consulting agency, Erica is all too familiar with gender disparity in the nonprofit space and all the ways it holds women back. Though LA-based now, this born and raised New Yorker was hooked on events after donating to cyclist friends—then joining them as a volunteer lead—on the Boston New York AIDS Ride. Beyond her extensive event production and fundraising consulting experience, Erica's passion for people—coworkers, client partners, event volunteers, and participants alike— is what drives her commitment to continuous improvement. Her teams have created two of the industry's most successful event series, but it's her background—steeped in development from the very beginning—and her focus on the highest level of customer service that keeps those fundraisers coming back. Erica was recently nominated for LASSO's "Top Women in the Event Production Industry" awards.
