✨M E E T ✨ Erica @mswheelchairarkansas2019 ! She has taken her passion and love for community by storm, in just the 2 1/2 months since being crowned. Erica hopes to inspire others through her mentorship program by using both education and advocacy. "I want to bridge the gap between walkers and rollers, while bringing Communities TOGETHER, one by one. I feel it's so important to show that you can do anything, no matter who you are."- Erica, @mswheelchairarkansas2019 A nurse before a unique spinal cord injury, Erica decided to follow her other passions after recovery. She went back to school and became a professional makeup artist and personal stylist. She put that to use by volunteering at various non-profit functions. "I am now a non-profit organization myself. It's wonderful how things come full circle!" . .

She enjoys spending time with her husband Anthony, her friends, and her puppy Elway. She also likes writing, plants and wearing creative outfits.
