Ericksen, who has served on the organization’s development committee for the past year, says she received notification in October that the board had appointed her for a 2013-2015 term.
“I was completely surprised and delighted by this appointment,” Ericksen says.
Ericksen says Literacy Advance is “an amazing organization” that has been in Houston for almost 50 years. She says the nonprofit focuses on literacy education services to adults and on helping immigrants for whom English is a second language to make the transition to productive American citizens. In addition to its classes to increase literacy proficiency, it offers classes on personal life goals, such as how to deal with personal finances, she says.
A 2002 graduate of St. Mary’s University School of Law, Ericksen says she focuses her practice on business law and business litigation.
