Erica A.
8 years of service

For Erica, her journey as a Professional Development Specialist and Behavioral Health Research Trainer has been about employee wellness, and the past year has been no exception. When the pandemic started, she jumped into action coordinating with other departments to develop relevant trainings and content to launch programs such as Safe Office Entry, Tech Tuesday, Microsoft Trainings, Healing Spaces, and other programs to support her coworkers.

Personally, Erica was just as wary as anyone when it came to the COVID vaccine. But Erica and her husband took their vaccination shots to reunite with her mother-in-law, so she would never miss another one of her daughter’s milestones.

Erica’s journey to vaccinate included extensive research from credible sources, and she encouraged everyone to do the same. “Be intentional and aware with your research and make the decision that’s best for you.”

My shot to be a change agent.
