Erica Collins, M.Ed., Admissions Counselor
Although I was raised in the sunny, beach city of Los Angeles, California, I spent my summers with my aunt and uncle in beautiful Prescott, Arizona. My education consists of a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education—Special Education and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership Administration from Northern Arizona University. “Go Lumberjacks!”
I realized how much I loved to travel during my time as a competitive gymnast from age 9-15, as I traveled throughout our beautiful country. My additional moment of travel excitement was when I traveled throughout Europe visiting France, Spain, and London to name a few incredibly alluring travel destinations. I had been officially bitten by the travel bug. I recently had the opportunity to vacation in Cancun and absolutely loved every moment of the food, beach, culture, and the people.
I look forward to continue to travel as time allows. In the meantime, I have been blessed to have the opportunity as a CEA Admissions Counselor to share my love and excitement of traveling with our CEA Study Abroad students and help guide them successfully and correctly towards their educational and career goals as they study abroad. When I am not at CEA, I enjoy watching and learning from HGTV, reading, hiking, listening to music, taking care of my pets, and spending time with my family.
Did you know? During my time as a competitive gymnast, I was training towards the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain when my path changed due to an injury. I ended up coaching elite-level gymnasts for 6 years instead.
