Outside BERK


Equally at home in the city or the back country, Erika boasts excellent skills in both parallel parking and making campfires. A native Washingtonian, she loves exploring the trails, sidewalks, and beaches of the Puget Sound region and geeking-out on board games with her friends and family. You might also find her telling stories, playing tennis, or feeding her three children who never. stop. eating.
