Erika is the “the new voice of online dating,” according to Philly.com. Among other outlets, she has been profiles on NPR’s Tell Me More and The Kojo Nnamdi Show, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and AskMen.com. Erika has also been JDate’s leading expert, a featured columnist on Philly.com, and she currently writes a weekly dating advice column syndicated through the Chicago Tribune. Her book, Love at First Site, has also received high acclaim.
Erika’s educational background includes a B.A. in Economics from Cornell University and an M.B.A. from Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business.
As a very early adopter of online dating, starting in 2001, Erika knew that this then-new way of meeting people seemed promising. Over the years, through online dating herself, she had countless dates, numerous relationships, and stories to last a lifetime. She then decided to start tracking her own online dating results in a spreadsheet… the only way an economist knows how to do things!
Her philosophy is that if you market yourself well, you’ll get more dates. And, the more first dates you go on, the higher the probability that you’ll have a connection with someone, simply by increasing your odds.
After working in the finance industry for over seven years, Erika took the leap to quit her job to start this business in early 2011. Since then, Erika has worked with over 1,000 clients, and her success stories run the gamut from happily married couples to countless clients now being able to navigate online dating after a long time out of the game.
It genuinely makes Erika happy to see others find happiness and share her secrets to success at online dating. Learn more about our process here.
