In her free time, Erika enjoys traveling, spending time outdoors and having quality time with her family and friends. She likes to be involved in the community and can often be found volunteering with different organizations, especially ones focusing on animals as she has a big soft spot for all animals. Her love for animals started at an earlier age and was fostered through her riding career as she grew up competing in the Hunter Jumper Circuit with her two horses. Now her focus during her free time is on her young family and household pets.
