Erika has worked in outpatient, home health, early childhood intervention, and school settings and has treated patients with developmental and neurological conditions from ages preemie to 21. She believes, first and foremost, in developing a strong relationship with the families that she works with in order to foster their ability to provide as much functional independence for their child as possible. Erika has experience working with children with diagnoses including cerebral palsy, down syndrome, autism, spina bifida, intellectual disability, dystonia, developmental delay, muscular dystrophy, torticollis, and other chromosomal abnormalities. In all cases, she believes in focusing on function by addressing family goals to increase an individual’s ability to participate in the life activities that are meaningful to them.
Erika is an active member of the pediatric section of the American Physical Therapy Association and is a CureDuchenne Cares certified physical therapist. She lives in Trophy Club and has two daughters who attend school in Northwest ISD. Her husband is a T-38/A-10 pilot in the Air Force Reserves and a Boeing 777 pilot for Delta Airlines.
