Erika began her optical career in 1990 where she attended the New York City Interboro Institute studying Opticianry and Ophthalmic Dispensing. In 2000, Erika moved to San Diego where she was employed as an Optician for nine years at The Classical Eye in Fashion Valley until its closure in 2009. During her time there, she developed a love and appreciation for luxury eyewear.
Erika then accepted a new opportunity in management with a large high-end optical chain in Atlanta. Missing San Diego, as well as the interpersonal and technical aspects of working as an Optician, she joined Urban Optiks in 2014, becoming an integral part of the team.
Erika enjoys fashion, shopping and happily attends Jazzercise classes where she recently passed her instructorship. Her “passion for fashion” and optical knowledge are truly her forte.
