Interview with Erika
Tell us about yourself
I grew up in Surprise, AZ. I received a B.S. in Advertising and a B.S. in Photography with a minor in Public Relations from Northern Arizona University. I was on the event planning committee for my sorority in college and loved thinking of fun activities that we could do at our philanthropy events. A few of my favorite things to do are photography, hiking, and watching movies. I am a big animal lover and treat my dogs like they are my children lol!
Why did you become a Community Education Coordinator?
I have always had a passion for marketing and event planning. TEAM 4 Kids introduced me to the world of pediatric therapy and this position allows me to share our resources with the community while being creative.
Why do you think your coworkers nominated you for being Imaginative?
I think I was nominated for being imaginative because I create a lot of our visual marketing and it is important to use your imagination to help everyone’s ideas come to life!
What do you love most about working with TEAM 4 Kids?
I love working at TEAM 4 Kids because I have the best coworkers and it is such a collaborative environment! We all work together across all departments and I know I can always draw inspiration for videos and content just by visiting with the therapists and other admin. Everyone is so kind and caring and it really is one big family.
If you had one wish, what would it be?
If I had one wish, I would wish for the ability to teleport. It would be amazing to be able to travel anywhere you want, and think of how much time you would save!
