After three years of college athletics, Erika has decided to focus her efforts on things outside of sports. Although still very passionate about soccer, she has decided to hang up the cleats after her third season in order to become more engaged in other activities that will enhance her educational journey. Throughout her time at William Jewell, Erika has become involved in many clubs on campus including Society of Physics Students, Panhellenic Recruitment Counsel, and during her sophomore year she was inducted into Sigma Pi Sigma - The Physics Honors Society, and Order of Omega - The Greek Honors Society. She has also held several positions in her sorority including Public Relations Coordinator and Purchasing Coordinator. A few passions she has outside of soccer are learning and friendships. Erika has a younger sister who is a senior in high school, two corgis, and as you may have already noticed from the image above, a tuxedo cat.
Erika has always had a passion for leadership and entrepreneurship and it has showed from her involvement in DECA in high school to her involvement in her sorority, campus clubs, and college athletics. She is very dedicated to expanding communication between Student Life offices and the students on her campus, as well as implementing a career fair on campus or in the area, and she believes being involved in University Innovation Fellows will help her succeed in this.
