Erica attended Towson University where she was a diver in the CAA for her freshmen and sophomore years under Coach Maureen Mead. At Towson, she majored in Mass Communications with a Concentration in Public Relations and Integrated Communication. In 2005, she spent the year in Ireland attending the University of Limerick for Geography and Intercultural Communication Studies.

An interesting note on Erica is that prior to attending and diving at Towson State, she dove and swam at Ursuline Academy in Dedham, Massachusetts. While at Ursuline, Erica was a teammate and friend of Coach Groden's oldest daughter, Susan.
