Erica says winning Mystique's 5th Anniversary Model Safari in 2003 changed her. Rising above the other 2,000 contestants to claim the title greatly boosted her confidence and self esteem, and she says it helped take her modeling to the next level. Her popularity subsequently soared online, and she went on to win another prestigious glamour title, becoming Playboy's Special Editions Model of the Year in 2005.
Originally from New Hampshire, Erica still lives in the Northeast. She loves animals, especially horses, and passionately participates in Equine rescue and rehabilitation organizations. She loves to ride, and even has her own champion show horse, which she is very proud of.
Erica says modeling really helps her express herself, and when working, she puts her whole heart and soul into it. Prior to modeling, she pursued a nursing degree, which makes sense because Erica is a natural caretaker. She is a strong, confident and a straightforward person who can't stand dishonesty.
