Erica is a graduate of both Michigan State University, where she earned her B.A. in psychology, and the University of Michigan, where she earned her master's in social work with a focus in clinical practice. She has several years of research experience and is very interested in learning about the causes and manifestation of bipolar disorder. She is also interested in early intervention, treatment, and the improvement of treatment options that currently exist. In the future, Erica hopes to be in a position to lead, train, and supervise new MSWs. She would also like to teach, engage in research, and possibly return to school to obtain her Ph.D. in a joint social work and clinical psychology program.
