Erika was born in Twin Falls Idaho but moved around a lot and would always find herself helping feed the cows, horses, and chickens on the farms. She even got to help raise an Emu which was a great experience!

Then in middle school, she moved to the Wood River Valley. It was a big change but in the end, she loved it here. Erika spends most of her time with her 2 boys and husband. She loves to go fishing and being outdoors in the summer. She also enjoys playing with her 2 dogs Peanut and Cole and sleeping with her 2 cats Gigi and Lulu.
