Erika came on as an Planner with New Creations in early 2015 and has been going strong ever since. Her can-do attitude, amazing organizational skills and eye for detail can be attributed to her varied background in events. Erika has hands-on experience working in professional sports (Go Hawks!), on corporate conferences, with nonprofits and alongside several of Seattle's top Wedding Planners, Event Designers and Florists.
In college, Erika majored in Bio-cultural Anthropology. Her research topic of choice was "The Rules of Attraction." She is fascinated by what brings two people together. She loves getting to know each couple and helping them create a day that truly captures the essence of their story. Her favorite parts of the wedding day are the vows and the toasts. She can't help but tear up a little every time.
When she's not planning events, Erika likes to travel and explore the beautiful Pacific Northwest. A bit of a self-admitted nerd, she enjoys reading about history and science so, naturally, she is an excellent trivia teammate. Erika believes that you are never done learning so she makes an effort to continue her education through classes, workshops and by learning from other event pros to perfect and learn new skills. She is currently exploring an interest in event floral design.
Erika is excited to have turned her passion into a career with New Creations and can't wait to learn more about what you have been envisioning for your special day!
