I was born with a form of Muscular Dystrophy called Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease. I was diagnosed at the age of two and I have been fully dependent on the use of a power wheelchair for thirteen years now. At a young age, my mother taught me how to be self-sufficient and independent. I never let my disability stand in the way of overcoming any obstacle.

My passion in life is helping others succeed, especially the disabled and special needs community, at their individual life and educational goals! Hello, my name is Ericka!

With over 15 years of creating individually based study skills techniques, I help individuals identify what method/s are going to work for him or her. Techniques include but are not limited to verbalization memory strategies, visualization memory strategies, games, time management, and writing. The great thing with study skills is it brings out the creative side of individuals and because there is no one set way for everyone, unique programs can be designed!
