Erica joined Waterloo Greenway Conservancy (WGC) in January 2020 and serves as Chief Operating Officer overseeing organizational and park operations, communications, community engagement, human resources and programming. Waterloo Greenway is a 1.5-mile urban park system supported by a public-private partnership between the City of Austin and WGC. Once complete, the 35 acres of connected green space will be home to an array of natural and cultural destinations. The park system is being planned, designed, and built-in three phases of geographic milestones. Phase 1 opened in August of 2021 and includes Waterloo Park and the Moody Amphitheater. Phase 2 planning and design processes are complete and construction begins in the fall of 2022. Amid gardens, rolling pathways, and a twinkling Waller Creek that links the park system, the environment, arts, health, and adventure will converge and nourish authentic and uplifting community experiences. Erica previously served as Associate Vice President for Community and External Relations and Associate Vice President for Assessment and Strategic Planning at UT Austin. Erica was born in the Rio Grande Valley and moved to Austin in 1993 to attend UT Austin. She holds a BA from UT Austin and an MFA from UCLA.

Her board and service commitments include Austin Soundwaves, Community Advancement Network, Goodwill Industries of Central Texas, I Live Here I Give Here, Restore Rundberg, Somos Austin, Texas Exes Hispanic Alumni Network, Texas Exes Alumni Association Network Advisory Board, The Hispanic Alliance and The Long Center for the Performing Arts.
