A native of Milan, Italy, Erica has lived across Europe, touching down briefly in Tehran, Iran, and has crisscrossed the U.S. twice over the span of five years. Since 2010, she has called Canada home. Erica got her start in journalism with gigs at Foreign Policy magazine, the AP and the Wall Street Journal, where she helped chronicle the Great Recession from New York.
In Canada, Erica worked at Maclean’s for three years, where she turned the magazine’s Econowatch blog into a popular reader’s guide to anything from the housing market to income inequality. She was also a regular scribe for Canadian Business magazine, covering U.S. politics and policy and their impact north of the border.
In 2014, Erica joined the Christian Science Monitor in Boston as an international business editor, managing a team of 20 foreign correspondents and over 200 stringers spread across four continents.
She’s now back in Toronto, where she spends most of her free time trying to keep up with a toddler.
