Meet Erica

An entrepreneur at heart, Erica cannot help but develop strategies to improve the world around her. Born and raised in Silicon Valley, Erica started her first business early on, and it was complete with a business pitch, technology, and an operational plan.

 

With a dynamic 18-year career in marketing and communications, Erica offers frameworks for online success, leadership development, strategic communications, business growth, and team productivity.


Erica's husband Eddy and her two children have her heart. Her best moments are around her kitchen table, full of faith, family, connection, and laughter. The Thomas family is a hub of acceptance, authenticity, and care, oh and food – they like to make and share food.
