Undergraduate Degree: Florida State University
Erica attended Florida State University and graduated magna cum laude with an honors-in-the-major B.S. degree in biological science. She was involved in undergraduate research and completed an undergraduate honors research thesis in evolutionary genomics, investigating the effect of selection on early- and late-age mating proportion in Drosophila flies. During her undergraduate career Erica was inducted into several honor societies, including Phi Beta Kappa, Rho Lambda and the Golden Key International Honour Society. Outside of academics, Erica served the community by volunteering with many organizations, primarily the women's Refuge House and the PACE Center of Tallahassee.
