Announcement from Deputy Director, social, off-platform curation Travis Lyles, Universal News Desk editor Kenisha Malcolm and Head of Curation and Platforms Coleen O’Lear:
Erica comes to The Post from MarketWatch, where she served as a social media editor who specialized in growing the company’s Instagram following and expanding its following to a younger audience. She launched social-first projects, such as the brand’s first money challenge and Spring Clean Your Finances, and hosted a mobile video series called Finance 101.
Before that, Erica reported on police trials, midterm elections and student loans for the Wall Street Journal as a news intern in its Chicago bureau and as a Capitol Hill reporter for the Medill News Service.
Erica is from the Los Angeles area and is a proud Rams fan. A graduate of Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism, she teaches a class for the university’s high school journalism program about how to use social media as a reporting tool. In her free time, she loves to read, do Pilates and weave wall hangings. Erica will start on Oct. 3 and will relocate to Washington with her fiancé in the coming months.
Please join us in welcoming her to The Post.
