Biography

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Erica spent her childhood in Lubumbashi, Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo) before her family moved to Berrien Springs, MI. Her lifetime travel to more than 25 countries and her experience with living in four, has given Erica a deep appreciation for the diversity and complexity as well as the similarities found in culture variations. 

Erica attended Andrews University from Fall 2009 until her graduation in Spring 2014. During that time, she studied at Campus Adventiste du Salève, in Collonges-sous-Salève, France as part of the Adventist Colleges Abroad program. She also spent a year as a student missionary at Helderberg College, in Somerset West, South Africa. In addition to taking classes in Behavioral Sciences, Anthropology, Psychology, Sociology, Visual Arts, and French, Erica signed up for as many tours as possible which included earning her Open Water S.C.U.B.A certification through a tour to Cozumel; Skiing in Steamboat, Colorado; and learning about culture and religion in Peru - twice. As a J.N. Andrews Honors scholar, and combining her lifelong love of art and color with her experince and fascination with culture, Erica completed her Senior Honors Thesis on the Perception of Color Symbolism, entitling her study "The Diversity of Color: An Analysis of Cross-Cultural Color Symbolism". Starting during High School, Erica served as the Arts and Crafts Director at Timber Ridge Summer Camp in Spencer, IN for a total of eight summers,teaching ceramics and crafts to chidren between the ages of 4 and 17.
