My dental assisting career began 16 years ago. I graduated from American Institute of Health and Technology in 2002. After 10 years in dental assisting I moved on to additional roles of front office. For the last 6 years I have been fulfilling administrative roles with Emerald West Dental.

During my off time I enjoy spending time with my husband and two boys. When I am not at soccer arenas, or soccer parks watching my boys play soccer, I can be found running, hiking, boating and enjoying outdoor activities.

Born in Bosnia and raised in Idaho, and love to travel to other countries.

Idahome raised and proud! Erika has spent 4 years as a dental assistant and is out to change one smile at a time.

I have been with Emerald West Dental since September 2016. I enjoy working with a talented and caring team and getting to know all of our wonderful patients! Prior to working for Dr. Hess and Dr. Moss I was a nanny for 5 years. Currently, I am in the Education program at Boise State University working up to my professional year.
During my free time I enjoy the great outdoors with my husband and our Pomeranian, Hunter. I come from a large family and love spending my weekends with them. We love to cook and enjoy bringing new recipes to the table!

I have been working in the dental field since 2015, I started at Emerald West in April of 2018.
