Erika started running in high school to be social with friends, but ended up falling in love with the sport. She ran for Santa Barbara City College prior to competing for Cal Poly, where she graduated from in 2014. Erika loves being outside as much as possible and finds running to be a great way to explore the outdoors. She has done many other outdoor activities as well: riding horses, backpacking with her dad, and most recently paddle boarding; however, running will always be first in her heart. Erika lives in San Luis Obispo and works as a veterinarian technician.
