A West Michigan native, Erica graduated cum laude from Central Michigan University where she earned a degree in broadcasting and cinematic arts. Fire Up Chips!
Erica has always had a passion for ‘giving a voice to the voiceless’ and that passion continues to grow.
When Erica isn’t chasing down a story for FOX 17, she enjoys traveling, trying new foods, playing golf, watching Lion’s football and coaching baseball for West Michigan Miracle League.
On Erica’s desk you’ll find her favorite quote, “Dreams don’t work unless you do,” she says it inspires her daily to report and anchor with diligence and honesty all while doing what she loves.
Erica is more than thrilled to be anchoring in a city she absolutely adores and is so lucky to call home. Watch Erica 4:30-6:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Monday through Friday.
