At Marketplace, Erica has exposed everything from dirty hospitals and sky high vet bills to how children's homeopathic remedies get licensed by Health Canada. She has won numerous awards, and is a five-time Gemini/Canadian Screen Award nominee for best host of an information program. This season, Erica is uncovering what really happens to the coffee cup you toss in the recycling bin, and revealing unappetizing facts on best before dates.

Erica lives in Vancouver, where she enjoys hiking, playing piano and surfing.
