Erika Shioya, Watershed Coordinator Erika is the Assistant Watershed Coordinator for the Saint Vrain Creek Coalition. She received her Bachelor of Science from the University of California at Berkeley in Genetics and Plant Biology. Most recently, Erika spent five years as the Communications Coordinator for the Colorado Watershed Assembly (CWA), a nonprofit supporting watershed coalitions throughout the state of Colorado. She was in that particular role during the 2013 floods and was inspired by the way the affected communities quickly rallied together to support those in need.
Service to others has always been of particular importance to Erika, and she has volunteered for numerous nonprofit organizations including the Center for Native Ecosystems, The Park People, and TRU Community Care. She is excited to be working in a capacity where she can directly support the interests of those in her very own watershed.
