Erika started working in health care in 2011 at Mattapan Community Health Center as a Medical Assistant. Beginning in an Adult Primary Care/Substance Abuse Clinic, she later transferred to Pediatrics and then to OB/GYN.  During her time as an OBGYN Medical Assistant, Erika knew OB was her passion and that she wanted to do more for moms and babies, especially for those who had complex medical and social needs.

She is thrilled to be continuing her work with Stronger Generations, supporting and empowering families, and helping the team launch this exciting program!  Outside of work, Erika enjoys being a mom of two boys who are her world—Aiden and Ezequiel.
