Erika treasures tinkering with words. Whether she’s constructing atrociocomic portmanteaus, advocating for abundant alliteration, or making those present tense with her groan-worthy puns, she’s happiest when playing with language and letters to elicit laughter, even if it’s her own.

At PSC, Erika applies her linguistic skills as a senior editor, providing copy, line, and developmental editing for the firm’s written materials, including reports, surveys, proposals, and social media. She also formats documents to meet style and branding guidelines. Additionally, she works with PSC staff to improve their writing, with the goal of producing high-quality materials that lead to actionable solutions.

Prior to joining PSC, Erika was the office manager for the Michigan Film & Digital Media Office, where she tracked the office budget, drafted and edited internal and external communications, and researched developments in the film and digital media industries as well as relevant legislation. Before that, she taught composition courses at Central Michigan University and Olivet College.
