Meet Erika: Fighting for Alberta, Fighting for You.
Erika is a conservative activist, business leader, entrepreneur, dedicated volunteer, runner, and most importantly, wife and stepmom.
Born in Saskatchewan, Erika moved to Alberta nearly 20 years ago and has called our province home ever since. It’s where she started a small business years ago, and where she and her husband Ryan are today raising two kids.
A conservative activist, she has been involved in federal and provincial politics throughout her time in Alberta. Erika served as the first elected President of the United Conservative Party of Alberta, elected by members in 2018. In this role, Erika travelled across the province, working with volunteers to organize and prepare for the historic 2019 provincial election. Erika is currently the President of the Conservative Party of Canada’s Electoral District Association in the battleground riding of Edmonton-Centre, working with volunteers to build and grow the party.
Erika is a passionate community volunteer, giving her time to a variety of important causes, including the Edmonton Down Syndrome Society, Rotary International, and Fort Edmonton Park. She also serves as a mentor to young professionals in a number of organizations.
Today, she works as Western Canadian Vice-President for a national strategic communications and public affairs company. In this role, Erika works with small businesses and some of Canada’s biggest companies and non-profits, helping them overcome barriers to job creation and investment in western Canada.
She previously ran her own small business in Edmonton for several years. Past jobs also included working in the Alberta Legislature and as a senior advisor to a major Alberta energy utility.
She regularly appears on national TV panels and newspapers, speaking up for Albertans on a range of issues where the Trudeau Liberal government has ignored Alberta.
Erika is a graduate of the University of Calgary and today lives in Edmonton with her husband Ryan.
