Erica Hilton is a social media innovator, strategic communicator, community builder and a forever learning student. After being called a “shoo-in” for “Most Likely to Succeed” by Charlotte Magazine, Erica relocated to Washington, DC where she works as an Online Activism Manager for an international labor union.
Erica graduated from Johnson C. Smith University summa cum laude (May 2011), where she served as SGA Student Body President. After earning her bachelor of arts degree in Communication Arts, Erica moved to Washington, DC to earn a master of arts degree in Public Communication from American University (August 2012).
Over the past few years, Erica has implemented digital communication plans, earned media placements within the top 20 DMAs, written speeches and remarks for executive-level government officials, produced commercials and interviewed athletes and celebrities such as Musiq Soulchild for a university-based piloted news show. Erica also offers individuals image consulting specializing in social media, online branding and crises communication. She believes that “To whom much is given, much is required.”
As a southern girl living in the heart of DC, Erica loves experimenting with the different restaurants, events and all the great things the District has to offer. She’s a huge book-worm, which she takes much pride in. When you see her on her daily commute, she’ll more than likely have a book or her kindle in hand. Most of all, Erica is the ultimate dog lover.
