Teacher

Like many younger siblings, Erica started swimming because her older brother swam. After lessons at the age of three, Erica started competitive swimming at the tender age of four, in a 20-yard YMCA pool in her hometown of Cambridge, Massachusetts. By the time she turned ten, she moved on to swim for a USA Swimming club team called the Charles River Aquatics Dragons. In addition to swimming competitively year-round, Erica's mom brought her to Harvard's technique swim school, swim camps, and swim meets from the ages of 5-12. It was at Harvard where she set a goal to become a college swimmer. She was recruited to swim at New York University, where she majored in Environmental Studies and minored in Business of Entertainment, Media, and Technology and was a three-time NCAA All-American. Having recently graduated, Erica is staying connected with the sport by teaching kids to swim and hopes to show the joy of the water to a new generation of swimmers.
