Erika’s mission is to capture the essence of a subject and distill it into crisp, clear instructional content that engages the target audience and covers all learning objectives. She takes complex raw material and transforms it into comprehensive and compelling content that is easy for learners to process.
Since 2014, Erika has developed and edited educational content for a variety of clients including the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, Association of Municipal Administrators, Nova Scotia (AMANS), three Ottawa Community Health Centers, and Algonquin College. Through this work, Erika has covered topics that include leadership foreign trade, statistics, and global citizenship.
As is fitting for someone who spends her days crafting effective instructional materials, Erika is passionate about her own professional development. Her interest in human behavior led her to study psychology at Carleton University and this knowledge base provides a useful foundation for her work developing leadership content. She also holds a degree in English from the University of Ottawa and is currently working toward a diploma in professional writing from the University of Calgary.
As well as being an instructional designer, Erika has eight years of experience as a freelance writer. She has covered a variety of topics in her articles, blog posts, case studies, press releases, and website content for national non-profit organizations and small-to-medium-sized businesses in the Ottawa area.
