Erika was born and raised in Wadena, MN, and attended Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM) to earn her Bachelors in Social Work, with an emphasis in Criminal Justice.
Erika has been with Hatch since 2017. Prior to entering the real estate world, she worked many years in the service industry as well as working in the human services background at the Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch. As a result, Erika has a down-to-earth attitude and is genuinely interested in people – their thoughts, behaviors and how they became who they are. She is a natural learner, wanting to know the why behind everything, which allows her to avoid the potential risks for her clients. She enjoys teaching and walking first-time homebuyers through the process, answering questions and finding additional resources for clients if they need extra help during the transaction.
She likes thrifting in her spare time – not because she likes shopping, but because she likes to get a deal. She also enjoys WW2 history, including movies and documentaries made on the topic. In addition, if you love to travel, she would love to hear your experiences as she plans her next trip! She’ll cheer for any MN team and enjoys a number of sports. She loves food (eating it and cooking it). Although she doesn’t make it to the lake often, she likes camping and fishing when she can.
