Avon Walker & teammate

I had the pleasure of working with Erica on the Avon Breast Cancer Walk. She was the Team Lead for our team and was responsible for organizing the crew, as well as setting up the tent services for the walkers. I found Erica to be highly motivated and organized. While I was exhausted the next morning she was up teaching a group yoga class to hundreds of walkers. Her passion and dedication to the organization as a volunteer as well as a walker is inspirational!

I have to say how taken aback I was the first time I met Erica Paul. When I walked into the first day of a training and development course being taught by Erica I was pleasantly surprised to learn the high level of credentials Erica has amassed for herself. Instantly I was excited to realize that the content of the training class was going to exceed my expectations-which it did. Through the next 100 hours with Erica I discovered that her passion, enthusiasm and drive for empowering the success of those around her was contagious. I found myself the recipient of new organizational development techniques that I could apply real world immediately. I was so impressed with Erica's contributions both academically and on a community service level that it inspired me to take a follow up class with her immediately covering conflict resolution and mediation. Thank you so much Erica-and the free Yoga moments were priceless!

As one of the Rosendin project managers on our data center, Erica consistently demonstrated an ability to work with a variety of personalities and creatively solve a number of problems to help deliver the project under a very tight deadline. Several of these issues would have pushed our project far past our deadline had it not been for Erica pushing toward completion on a daily basis

While working with Erica I found her to be dedicated to cost savings, customer concerns and satisfaction. Erica was a valuable member to the team and was responsible for overseeing many aspects of the project. Erica is a take charge kind of individual that searches for solutions to problems rather than rely on others to solve them. Erica is a hand on team leader and player she dedicates herself to the project and I look forward to the opportunity to work with Erica again.
