Erica first fell in love with our community on a ski trip during the incredibly snowy winter of 2008 and promised herself she’d return upon finishing college. That same year, she earned her B.S. in Recreation Resource & Ski Resort Management and a minor in marketing from Lyndon State College in northern Vermont. After a quick pit-stop in Durango helping youth get involved in snowsports at over 100 ski areas nationwide, Erica kept her promise to herself to return here. She has proudly called our community home for over a decade.
Erica’s first role in the valley was with the Gunnison-Crested Butte Tourism Association in 2010 as their marketing coordinator and webmaster. In 2011, she went on to be a member of and eventually lead Crested Butte Mountain Resort’s marketing team. With a tenure of 8 years at CBMR, Erica developed a strong passion for our community and has a true desire to help Gunnison County be the best it can be. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to align her skillset with her heart to join the Community Foundation as Communications & Development Director.
Erica and her husband are grateful to raise two adventurous toddlers and two (almost as adventurous!) huskies in our beautiful community. With a love of water, Erica enjoys all types of fishing our valley has to offer and can be found on warm weekends on the Blue Mesa or Taylor Reservoir, and on cold days ice fishing there, too! When off the water, she loves skiing, snowmobiling, gardening and chasing her kids around!
