Erika became a professional writer in 2010, and her work is published all over the web. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Finance from the University of MD, a certification in Communications, and oddly enough, a mixology certification. Erika's love affair with home tech began when she first received “The Clapper” as a gift about two decades ago. Now, after several years of writing columns about the home and saving money, she keeps her finger on the pulse of the latest technology and she has tested and written about dozens of smart home gadgets. Erika still hums the “Clap on, Clap off” jingle every once in a while too. You can follow Erika on Twitter.
