Ericka uses ingenuity and persistence to create innovative solutions for clients.

She draws on her past experiences as a financial services compliance officer, where one of her main tasks was to advise on whether company policies and procedures and operations were compliant with federal regulations, to offer a fresh perspective on laws applicable to financial institutions and other lenders. Ericka advises consumer finance clients on compliance and risk mitigation.

These clients count on Ericka to bring tenacity, care and attention to each of their matters. She takes time to understand their unique characteristics – and to make sure they understand the complex regulations that affect their specific circumstances.

Prior to joining Husch Blackwell, Ericka served as an extern for the Hon. James M. Dowd, Missouri Court of Appeals, Eastern District, and as an intern at the Missouri Attorney General’s Office in the Consumer Protection Division. She also served as a summer associate at the firm.
