About Erika

Erika is a Colorado-bred, Seattle-based artist. She graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 2012 with a B.A. in Theatre Arts with an emphasis in Acting, and moved to New York City.

She has spent some time with Musical Theatre International revamping their show pages, studied with T. Shreiber Studios, and acted in an array of productions and readings for both the stage and screen. She also spent a great deal of her time as an actor-trainer for the Crisis Intervention Training programs for NYPD’s recruits, HNT, and ESU units, and Riker’s Island’s Department of Corrections. The CIT program aims to prioritize qualitative policing and encourage prison reform by training officers to de-escalate emotionally distressed and mentally ill persons in a nonviolent manner.

Since her move to Seattle, WA in 2018, Erika has been pursuing her Master's Degree in Acting at the University of Washington and acting professionally in the Seattle theatre scene. Erika is delighted to be on the Statera Team and to take positive action for gender balance in the theatre and beyond.
