Ericka Ledferd is passionate about public service. She developed this passion and an early interest in politics and interdisciplinary studies while traveling across South America in her youth.
At 17, she immigrated to the United States from Buenos Aires, Argentina. As a naturalized American citizen, she will tell you that her civic responsibilities have become more critical than ever in our current atmosphere. Ericka feels called upon to do her part to uphold and build upon American values. She exemplifies the idea of the American Dream by becoming successful in life due to her earnest hard work.
Ericka believes in public education because she is a product of the Texas educational system. She received her Bachelors of Science in Political Science and a minor in Interdisciplinary Studies from Texas A&M University-Commerce in 2003. After graduating, Ericka worked for TRIO Programs at Southern Methodist University and later for the Foreign Language Program at Texas A&M University-Commerce.

In addition, she owns a business, Ledferd PR, a public relations agency specializing in nonprofit public relations, public affairs, public relations, and digital marketing.
Ericka and her husband David have been married for 24 years, and she counts him as one of her most incredible supporters. They have three beautiful children.
