"In the nearly 8 years that Erika and I were at Moxie during the same time, I've had the pleasure of working with her in many different ways.

As a developer on projects, Erika always delivers. As a manager of people, Erika shines and is a strong leader, mentor and coach. And in her current QA role, Erika has truly shown that she's got what it takes to set up, build, and lead a department and function within Moxie.

Erika also really loves and enjoys her career and constantly seeks to learn more about where the industry is heading and what she should know. She also brings all the learnings back to her team and is great about sharing with them on things she's learned. She wants to help her team grow and is a great support to the people who work for her and with her. She brings new ideas and thinking to the table and seeks to question things that don't seem right, or that she wants to know more about.

Beyond all of Erika's talents and professionalism, she's truly a wonderful person and friend. I'm fortunate to have been able to work with Erika for so many years."

"The thing about Erika is that she takes an opportunity and runs with it. She takes her role seriously and has built a group at Moxie that was absolutely missing, needed, had no leadership - let alone definition and turned it into a huge improvement once she headed it up. When she sees a gap, she identifies it, recommends improvements, documents it and follows through on implementation even when she hasn't been tasked with it. I had the pleasure of working with Erika directly on a task force to implement a new tool, and she was extremely organized, methodical and motivated to roll it out. Erika is truly an asset to the technical team at Moxie and seriously transformed QA for the company."

"Erika has been an integral part of the tech department’s growth since the early days of Moxie. I can only speak to the last four years I have worked with her, but from the work she has done as a developer, to those she has hired and managed and now building a QA department for Moxie, she is a force to be reckoned with.

Erika has hired a number of people since I’ve been here and to say she has a sense about people is an understatement. Meet anyone on her QA team and you will understand.

Aside from her intuition, Erika’s business sense is also astounding. She looks at the big picture and is able to break it down into its smaller parts, prioritize and tackle one-by-one. In Erika’s world there are no boundaries, it’s far more than being someone who can think outside of the box. Erika will surround herself with key players and follow through on any project in which she commits."

"Erika founded and led the QA department and was instrumental in developing protocol and processes for each Client. The hustle and bustle of our Clients business sometimes hindered the ability to establish proper QA processes however Erika worked with each stakeholder to determine how best to embed QA throughout the project lifecycle. She's a pleasure to work with, constantly providing solutions to challenging situations."

“I've had the pleasure of working with Erika on a number of projects and initiatives while at Moxie Interactive. Besides being a wonderful person with an always-pleasant demeanor, Erika is an intelligent, focused and driven developer who understands all of the technical aspects of presentation development and who has a great eye for the creative execution. She stays on top of happenings in the industry and is continually in pursuit of the latest technologies.

In addition to brilliant execution, Erika is an effective manager and invested mentor to a team of User Interface developers: prioritizing their workloads and making sure they have the tools and training they need to succeed.

I am happy to give Erika my endorsement and I look forward to future projects working with her.”

"When I think of Erika, I think of Chaka Khan’s “I’m every woman”.
Let me tell you why:

Erika is probably one of the smartest people I know. Everything from HTML, .NET, Flash, Flex, jQuery, C++, I could go on all day. Erika can speak the language, write the code, solve problems on the spot, manage a whole slew of developers, conduct code reviews, write custom QA scripts, and not to mention – attend meeting after meeting. What amazes me the most – is that she is HAPPY to do it all. I don’t think I have ever seen her have a bad day and for that matter, I have never known her to miss a deadline. Always willing to pitch in a and stay until the job is done, work all weekend long, push the code out (and stay to make sure it’s working in production) and get up and do it all the next day. I really don’t know how she does it. She manages an amazing team of developers who I know for a fact respect and admire her unwavering loyalty and dedication.

I am proud to have worked with Erika and honored I can call her my friend."

"Erika is a shining star at Moxie. She is a master of process, timelines and estimates - but way more important in my opinion - she is an absolute blast to work with. I always know if she's on a project I can breathe easier. She is a team player and great at what she does. She is an incredible asset for any team!"

"While working at Moxie, I learned a lot of things. Near the top of that list is 'Go see Erika first'. She is a master of her craft and brings an unparalleled level of comfort to everyone on her projects that the job is going to be buttoned down and delivered with the highest quality. Every time. Her hunger for innovation is matched only by her abilities to lead and mentor. In a nutshell - she's awesome, and I miss working with her very much."

Erika's leadership skills are undeniably outstanding. She was always present to assist on any project or emergency release (which happened almost daily) and never once complained. Her teamwork approach will make her an attribute to any team."
