Erica was born and raised in the Lehigh Valley. Big weather events like the Blizzard of '93 cultivated her interest in the science of weather. After graduating from Bethlehem's Liberty High School, she pursued her weather interest at Penn State University, earning her Meteorology degree in 2002.
Erica's first job in TV weather was at KMID-TV in Midland, Texas, as the Weekend Meteorologist. Her next stop was at WHP-TV in Harrisburg, PA as a Meteorologist and reporter before joining 6abc.
In her spare time, Erica enjoys running, cooking, and gardening with her mom up in the Lehigh Valley. She and her adopted Golden Retriever mix, Twango, are active in Pals for Life, a pet therapy program in the Philadelphia area. You might also see Erica in the stands at a Penn State football game or cheering on her favorite baseball team, the Phillies!
