Erica Cajamarca brings thirteen years of client management experience in non-profit development and consumer insights to Francis Financial. Her non-profit career primarily focused on helping Fortune 500 companies, as well as high net-worth individuals and their families, identify and fund the programs that meant the most to them. One of the biggest takeaways from her non-profit experience was learning that a family's financial health begins with a strong foundation in financial literacy. This became even more evident during the COVID-19 pandemic, where she witnessed families struggling to make ends meet. Inspired to give back, Erica decided to go back to school and pursue a career change to financial planning.
Erica holds a Bachelor's degree in economics with a minor in business administration from Fordham University. In early 2021, Erica received the Dalton Education Diversity Scholarship aimed at promoting educated and credentialed individuals from minority backgrounds in the financial planning industry. She completed her financial planning education at New York University's School for Continuing and Professional Studies in December 2022. Erica has built her professional career on being caring, clever, and courageous! As a career changer, she is thrilled to be part of a firm that improves the lives of others through financial and personal empowerment.
