View all staff


For the past 5 years, Erica has managed the delivery of over 200 custom enterprise programs focusing on a range of objectives that include future vision strategy, mindset shifts, science-fiction design theory, and exponential thinking. Her passion lies in developing narratives and storylines that allow organizations to glimpse into the future, and understand what to do about it today.

Prior to joining SU, Erica worked in research and corporate partnerships at RocketSpace. Her focus was on bringing together corporate innovators and leading technology startups to transform industries globally through R&D and custom, stealth projects (very mysterious).

Erica is an adventurer; her favorite adventures in life so far have involved jumping from planes, swimming with sharks, and spending Halloween in New Orleans.

Today you can find Erica in Portland, Oregon with her husband, two step-daughters, and Gracie, her pup who is well known in the company for partaking in almost all video meetings on her giant bean bag behind Erica’s chair.
