Just before graduating from Franklin College with a degree in Advertising and Visual Communications, Erica spent her senior year at Emmis Communications radio division, in Indianapolis, as an intern in the promotions department for B105.7 WYXB and 97.1 Hank FM WLHK. She loved the company, but she was ready to return home to Cincinnati. Fortunately for everyone, the Cincinnati office offered her a position as a sales representative shortly after graduation in 2005. After about a year Erica decided she wanted to move to the business side of Cincinnati Magazine and accepted the job as Business Coordinator. Erica resides in Loveland with her husband and daughter.
