Erica has a wealth of experience. In over 18 years of practice, she has worked in family medicine, emergency medicine, rheumatology and dermatology. She has also served as a medical consultant to a non-profit organization that improves educational opportunities and access to health care in developing countries around the world. However, Erica’s passion has always been for dermatology. She loves practicing dermatology because of the ability it gives her to perform medical, cosmetic and procedural medicine. She finds true joy in helping her patients.
When she’s not immersed in all things skin, Erica spends time exercising, skiing, fishing, mountain biking, and traveling. She loves spending time with her family and watching her son compete in various sporting events.
