Born and raised in Birmingham. The daughter of a father that was one of our country's first US Navy SEALs and a mother who is a renowned artist whose work has been in the White House. "Growing up was fun. My parents were and are the best of both sides of the spectrum. Plus, always lots of love." Ericka is married to her best friend, a Birmingham Firefighter. She and her husband, Kevin, have one daughter, Ava. Saying that Ava keeps them on their toes puts it mildly. Travel is a new love for the small family. Ericka is a Jacksonville State Gamecock through and through, but is a HUGE Crimson Tide fan. Both parents graduated from Bama and Ericka's raising her daughter to be a Roll Tide fan as well; although, her husband's a Gator fan, she loves him anyway.
