Erica's journey with MS began in November 2016. Since that time, she has researched as much as she can about the disease. Because of the symptoms she experiences, she had to resign her job and now has more time to commit to her love of writing. She has been writing for NewLifeOutlook in January 2018 and enjoys contributing to the well being of her fellow MSers.
Erica loves making people laugh by sharing her experiences on her Wordpress blog That One Day When. She is fun-loving and tries to stay positive even on her worst days. Erica has four children and three grandchildren and enjoys them to the fullest.
Though Erica was born and raised in Evansville, Indiana, she raised her children in Indianapolis, Indiana and lived there for more than 20 years. Erica is now back home in Southern Indiana where she is working on her freelance writing career and a novel.
