Erica A. Reyes is a self professed politics and policy nerd. Currently, serving the Central Coast as District Director with Congressman Salud Carbajal, she enjoys advocating for constituents and keeping her pulse on the local political scene. A Central Coast native, she grew up in Nipomo, California and after circumnavigating the globe, lobbying in Washington DC, and obtaining her BA in Sociology from UC Santa Cruz, she returned home to work with the community. The proud Banana Slug began her career as an AmeriCorps volunteer working with SBCEO - Partners in Education, which quickly turned into grassroots political organizing. She has served on the Lucia Mar Unified School District School Board, Future Leaders of America, and is in her final term with the Planned Parenthood Central Coast Action Fund Board where she chairs the Electoral Committee. She is currently pursuing her Master’s in Public Administration from CSUN and enjoys outdoor adventures, getting lost in a good book, mindfully musing in podcasts, and practicing yoga in her downtime.
