About Erica

I am prior military. While attending grossmont college, I was the president of the student veterans organization. I thought it would be a great ideal back in 2008 to have our veterans go into the community and help in assisted living facilities and skilled nursing facilities. After seeing how short staffed, over worked, under paid, and how these patients felt, I know I needed to help. My children and I would paint nails, do hair, play bingo, assist in sporting events like the Kentucky Derby, with stick horses, play music, feed during the holidays, make mobiles for patients that could not get out of bed, and provide comfort for so many people that do not have family or friends to visit them.
