A few notes of thank to you from friends:
Erika is a ray of sunshine in the morning. Always greets me with a smile as she first walks in the office. She has a vast amount of knowledge about our community and she is always willing to help when she is asked. If I don’t know the answer to something rest assured Erika can probably help me out. I really have enjoyed working with her for the last ten years. Congrats Erika!!

Over the past ten years the community has had the privilege of having Erika as an intricate part of community management. Over the past several years of knowing her I have been able to see how she cares for the community. She takes great pride from making sure the reserve studies are as accurate as possible; this insures the dues are as accurate as possible. Her process and due diligence has helped make a plan not just for today but for the future. She has helped make and maintain Issaquah Highlands to the current standards that it is today and help homeowners be able to improve on their individual properties. We are thankful for her commitment and service for the last 10 years.

Erika is always willing to go the extra mile to help with task be it either in the office or in the field. Erika has been an integral part of this community and it would not be quite the same without her. Thank you Miss Erika…

As President of the Board of Directors of the IHCA and on its behalf, I want to thank Ericka for 10 years of exceptional service. Her knowledge and commitment to our residents is endless. From knowing what makes each of our neighborhoods unique, to how to explain the ARC process, to her invaluable assistance to orienting our new employees and residents she is the go to person.
Jim D. Young, President, Board of Directors, IHCA
As far back as I can recall, Erika has been on the scene, taking care of IHCA business in a warm, friendly and efficient manner. She has always been on the top of her game, even when she had other things on her mind. I have very much enjoyed working with Erika. Thanks for all you do Ericka- you’ve done your part to make Issaquah Highlands a great place to live.
Larry Norton, President, Highlands Council
I’ve been a member of the architectural review committee for the past six and a half years and been a resident of the Issaquah Highlands for almost 11 years. Resident volunteer driven committees such as the ARC require greatly on our IHCA liaison to facilitate, organize and keep our meetings running smoothly. Erika has been our IHCA liaison for as long as I have been a member and a critical component to ensuring our meetings are efficient, effective and informed. Her professionalism and organization have been a tremendous asset to the group and we are lucky to have her.
