Program Access AmeriCorps VISTA
Originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Erika spent her youth exploring the PA river hills, and helping out around her dad’s candle shop. She graduated in 2020 from Dickinson College with a double major in environmental studies and political science. Prior to joining VEEP Erika spent a year as an assistant teacher, and is excited to bring that experience to the position while getting to focus more on environmental issues. Erika is passionate about environmental justice, and is excited to be serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA at VEEP this year. In her free time she loves to ski, paint, read, and explore the outdoors.
