Erica started In Alignment, LLC. because she recognized the need for many mission-driven organizations and professionals to add strategic focus to their operations and daily activities. Often, especially in the nonprofit arena, resources are tight and it is imperative that labor, budgets, and processes are optimized. As a consultant, Erica has the tools, knowledge, and approach that helps to inform the best choices for you and your organization.
Prior to establishing In Alignment, Erica spent a combined 15+ years as a leader in nonprofit and arts organizations. For 8 years, she led the programmatic implementation of College Summit, one of the leading college access organizations in St. Louis toward superior, sustainable results. Through managing the growth of a start-up organization and navigating complex educational relationships, she developed knowledge many in the field seek for their organizations. A key strength of her tenure at College Summit was the ability to develop staff and cultivate leadership within the team. Stints with other organizations, including the Wyman Center and Upward Bound, round out a record of success with top educational nonprofit organizations.
