Erica’s work experience encompasses both design and construction, in both the commercial and residential realms. With a degree in Interior Design, Erica became a LEED AP while still in school.
Erica has a particular interest in residential design and construction, and was working with Smallworks Studios/Laneway Housing when the Laneway House Bylaw was passed in Vancouver. She is in the midst of continuing studies for green residential building, including Certified Energy Advisor training.
Erica has been actively engaged in the green community in Vancouver, especially with young and newly emerging professionals. While at Kwantlen, she co-founded an Emerging Green Builders group (affiliated with Cascadia), and is now engaged in linking EGB groups across the lower mainland, with the formation of the Metro Vancouver Emerging Professionals.
Erica moved into the building industry as a second career. Her previous work experience as a theatrical stage manager started in her home town of Edmonton, and expanded to include projects located all over Canada.
When not at the office, Erica can be found at home, working on her own never-ending green renovation, or in her garden, hoping her veggies will grow faster.
