After her graduation from university, Erica spent the next 20 years working in the communication industry as a producer and presenter on Channel Seven’s Sydney Weekender, as well as hosting her own radio shows both in Sydney and Melbourne. During this time, Erica developed a passion for understanding ‘what great communication looks like’ and how it affects our level of resilience, as well as our mental health and emotional wellbeing. Erica spent over a year researching and developing a series of workshops to present in schools and workplaces, under her own business model – ‘Communication Generation’.

Erica then went on to study The Resilience Doughnut (Child & Adolescent Model) under Lyn Worsley from The Resilience Centre and believes the model, with its strengths based approach and validated research, is an amazing resource to help children and adolescents build resilience and to thrive in everyday life. Erica is now a licensed trainer for The Resilience Doughnut and she based on the NSW Central Coast with her family. She is available to travel extensively to present, facilitate and train in events for students, parents and teachers about building their resilience in both schools and workplaces across Australia.
