Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.


Erica has particular clinical interests in health promotion, pregnancy, childbirth, the transition to parenting and lactation, contraception management, infertility and hormone replacement therapy. She provides care to women and girls from their first periods, throughout pregnancy and the childbearing years, through menopause and beyond. Erica believes in a holistic approach to healthcare that addresses physical and emotional health throughout the course of care; evidence-based practice and informed consent are at the heart of her care.

Erica earned a Doctor of Nursing Practice and Master of Nursing, Nurse-Midwifery from Oregon Health & Science University. Erica has practiced as a nurse-midwife in Portland/Oregon City for the past five years in a private practice. She is excited to be returning to OHSU and to have the opportunity to train the next generation of nurse-midwives.

When she’s not working, Erica enjoys hiking, biking, skiing, trips to the beach and spending time with family and friends and enjoying all that the Pacific NW has to offer. She has climbed Mt St Helens, Mt Adams and South Sister. She comes from a large family and has an older brother, twin sister, and younger sister as well as fantastic brother and sister-in laws.
