My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive: and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style. - Maya Angelou

Erica comes to us with experience in both Design and Sales – in fact, we first met Erica as our rep at CAP Carpet almost 17 years ago! Luckily the stars aligned for Hanson Builders in 2017 and we were able to bring Erica onto our Interior Design team.

Erica says the fun and collaborative design process here at Hanson Builders makes this job a dream come true! She enjoys working with homeowners and getting inspired to help customize their own personal dream homes. No two are ever alike!

When she’s not here at her dream job, Erica and her husband (who was born and raised in England!) are busy with their two kids and all of their sports and activities. She’s also passionate about updating and remodeling her own home, enjoying as many vacations with her family as she can possibly get, exploring new boutiques around the cities, and of course reading up on the trends in home design, color, and style. We are proud to have her on the team and you are going to love working with her to make your dream home come true!
