She has been involved in the Blaine School District since childhood first as a student (attended K-12), later as a parent, and professionally via meeting Mental Health needs in our community. Erika understands the heartbreak parents went through when the schools closed abruptly due to COVID-19 lockdowns, and the stressful impact it has had on youth, parents, and educators. She cares deeply about the future of the Blaine School District, strives to make it be a transparent system, and believes it will take the whole community to give our children a solid foundation, where their gifts can be nurtured.
