Although Erica loves her job in the news department, it is hard to keep her out of the sports department- talking stats with the guys.
"I'm not like most girls, I love my football!"
In her free time... you guessed it she is usually watching a football, basketball or baseball game, if she isn't at the game already.
Erica also enjoys traveling and using her knowledge of the French and Spanish Language.
Erica says her little sisters, Rebecca, Ariana and Olivia are her motivation to always do better work than the day before.
Erica loves to talk to new people. Please say hello if you see her, and give her the score of the game if you know it :).
