Hello! My name is Erika (she/her), and I'm an experienced intercultural educator and consultant who partners with institutions and individuals to teach, engage, and transform.
I work with diverse groups on themes such as culturally responsive communication & leadership, racially conscious parenting, racial/multi-racial identity formation, implicit bias awareness, and racial justice.
I'm currently based in Los Angeles, and I've lived and taught in a wide variety of international settings, with a diverse array of students, situations, formats, levels, and classrooms. With my lifelong, in-depth cross-cultural experience in multiple arenas, I approach teaching and learning as an interactive and dynamic process. I'm passionate about the ongoing work of equity and inclusion, and empowering people to do the work of coming to new growth and understandings.
