Being in real estate during the boom and bust cycle in this mountain valley has instilled in her the desire to support better community planning and a long term view of all decisions regarding land and development. Erica is also an avid photographer and has great respect for our natural beauty and friendly community she lives in. She has served the community in non-profit board capacities and feels that this valley has much to offer those that live here and newcomers who want to share in and protect the unique resources that we have.
