When Johnston Dental Care first formed in 2007, Erica was an integral part of its conception from writing the human resource manual to keeping the books and payroll to helping create the logo. Matt and Erica worked hand in hand to form Johnston Dental Care – usually with a baby on her hip.
Erica continues to manage much of the business end of Johnston Dental Care, creating effective systems to run smoothly and managing the billing. She is part of the marketing committee and is the creative mind behind many of the No Cavity Club t-shirts. She facilitates employee recognition and team unity opportunities. She also handles the interior design and decoration.
Erica earned a bachelor’s degree in English literature with a minor in business from Utah Valley University and a Master’s degree in bilingual/bicultural studies from LaSalle University. Her favorite hobbies are reading and cheering on her kids from the stands. Her marriage and children are her greatest joy and most fulfilling success. She’s also ridiculously funny.
