Upon graduating, Erika moved back to Atlanta where she worked as a pediatric nurse for 2 years. She then moved to Washington, D.C. and graduated from Georgetown University as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Missing the Florida warmth and way of life, Erika returned to the sunshine state, settling in Jacksonville, where she could be close to the coast and a short drive away from watching her Gators play football. Erika is highly dedicated to fitness, health, and wellness. She strongly believes in incorporating this passion into her practice, and places an emphasis on educating parents and patients on how children can make healthy choices, stay active, and thrive.
