Introducing, Erica

by Susan

You’ve read her posts and have possibly communicated with her via e-mail, but we don’t believe you have been formally introduced to our new virtual assistant, Erica.

Erica is a mommy to three children: Audrey 5, Isaiah 3 and Christian 18 months. She was a military wife for five years, worked in the Title Industry for six years, pursued a Psychology degree with aspirations of working with autistic children and also dabbled in web design.

Longing to stay at home with her children, Erica tried everything from running an in-home day care to working evening jobs. But ultimately, Erica and her husband decided she needed a full time income.

With her third child only a few months old, Erica was about to put her children in daycare and take a job outside of the home, when Janice and Susan called. Now, she is delighted to be a part of our team where she can have the best of both worlds.

When Erica does find spare time, she enjoys quilting and trying her hand at other sewing projects. She is hooked on Grey’s Anatomy and The Office, loves to sing and is also pretty much an internet junkie. You can find Erica blogging away at 3 Little Sparrows.

We are thrilled to have Erica working with us. She has already become an integral part of 5 Minutes for Mom and now we can’t imagine how we survived without her.

Thanks for joining the team Erica! :)

So nice to put a face with my favorite hard working sweetheart!

And I know that was a totally cheesy thing to say, and I’m not normally cheesy, so you know I really mean it. ;)
