I have had the privilege of working with Erica in two different roles with different employers. Erica moves hard and fast in all working environments. She learns quickly, creates systems and implements them on day one. She is a pleasant, kind and a supportive team member. Her drive for tracking the details, is consistent and reassuring to the team. She won't disappoint!
