Erika has decades — literally, decades — of professional public speaking, presenting, and lecturing experience.
At West Point, Erika honed her ability to inspire, explain, and motivate people through difficult scenarios. As an Army officer, she taught classes to auditoriums full of soldiers, led oath ceremonies multiple times per day for new recruits to all five branches of military service, gave stirring public speeches, and routinely presented briefings to commanders and decision makers, including generals.
Today, Erika speaks to medical and health communities, support groups, participants in health conferences and workshops, city councils, corporations, and other organizations about the power and potential of integrative medicine, as well as other topics close to her heart.
Erika speaks about determination, persistence, creativity, and collaboration. She uses the framework of her own life and experiences to build a tailored connection to the lives, struggles, and difficulties of those in her audience, empowering and increasing personal well-being, satisfaction, efficiency, communication, cooperative team-mentality, goal-achievement, and success. And that’s just the beginning…
Erika is at ease with an audience of any level of authority or expertise. She knows how to explain complex theories, create bridges of understanding between people and data, and connect with the toughest of skeptics.
As a presenter, Erika’s style is energetic, persuasive, amusing, and informative. As a member of the minority (both as a female in the military and as an acupuncturist in the modern paradigm of medicine), she is a voice for empowerment. And as a survivor of a complex illness, she sees herself as a beacon of hope to individuals and mothers facing debilitating, organ-threatening, or life-threatening prognosis.
If you’re tired of the same old boring speakers, and you want someone with a new, challenging, stimulating, engaging presentation that your people will remember for years, and who can provide perspective and techniques for transformation and self-improvement that folks will be able to implement immediately, hire Erika for your next event!
