This is Erica’s fourth season running the kid’s program at Vista Verde. Before living on the ranch, Erica was completing her Masters in Education at CU in Boulder. When she is not working, you can usually find her practicing yoga, walking her dogs, or reading a good book. She also enjoys backcountry skiing, and taste-testing artful dishes created by her husband, Chef John. To prepare for the snow and winter season, Erica and John camped across the island of Kauai for a week to soak up the sun!
