Erica grew up in the town of Stittsville, Ontario dreaming of becoming a soccer super-star. Her passion for the sport continued on throughout elementary and onto high school. As a naturally competitive individual, she was involved in a variety of the standard "Canadian" sports until that one fateful day in Grade 9 when the sign for Co-Ed Wrestling practice went up...The attraction to wrestling was immediate but it took a couple of years to transition and for the dream to evolve into the determined conquest it is today...
That dream required moving across the country as a young, optimistic athlete and setting up base in Calgary, AB to pursue a degree in Kinesiology, represent the U of C Dinos, and continue striving towards excellence as a member of Team Canada. Today, Erica is a full-time athlete and is also finishing a second degree at the University of Calgary. For today, tomorrow and moving forward... the dream and vision is to represent Canada at the 2016 Olympic Games. Each and everyday is dedicated to pursuing this dream.
