Much of Erica’s work is focused on helping organisations and the people within them adapt to, and succeed in, an increasingly global world.

Along with SHM’s CEO Maurice Biriotti, Erica has developed SHM’s operational relationship-management capability and grown it into a successful and unique practice area for SHM. In addition to her work with SHM’s clients, Erica is leading a pro-bono project that seeks to transfer SHM's skills in mediating conflicts between organisations to conflict or post-conflict areas of the world.

Prior to joining SHM, Erica worked in media and politics. She was a booking producer for MSNBC News in the US and also worked as a legislative assistant to two US congressmen.
