Why Ericka?

With a market saturated with professional speakers, why Ericka?

Ericka has the ability to connect with her audiences because she has been in the trenches raising babies while pushing hard to grow her professional practice. She has survived hours of working with clients in stressful situations following a sleepless night with a newborn. She has run several half-marathons in an attempt to maintain her own identity and push to new goals. Instantly connect with Ericka's infectious smile and fun spirit to learn that you are not alone in the beautiful battlefield of life.  Her relatable stories will have you laughing and excited about a new perspective on life!

As an event planner with a local non-profit organization, Ericka understands what it takes to create a successful event.  She guarantees she will do her best to elevate your event to the next level. Ericka WANTS to connect with you and your audience. It is her passion to meet new people and to make a positive impact through powerful, hilarious, and relatable messages!

What is Ericka's "why"?  Happiness.  Being fulfilled emotionally. Her kids... showing them anything is possible. Meeting new people. (She's kind of a relationship-forming junkie!) Feeling alive while on stage. Growing and feeling rejuvenated by hearing others' perspectives and life experiences.
