Erica Perkins
City Staff
Erica is a Minnesota native who moved to Detroit to attend college at Wayne State University where she studied Political Science. She worked for CSM Detroit as a City Host in 2015 and quickly realized that service means so much more when Jesus is the root of why you're serving. As she finished up her senior year (2017), she was Detroit's first Apprentice. After graduation and moving back to Minnesota for five months, God opened the door for her to come back to Detroit with another opportunity to serve! Her favorite part of working for CSM is seeing people come to Detroit with ideas of how the city might be, and then leave feeling at home, safe, and like they have something new to be passionate about. Her favorite parts of Detroit are the people and their resilience, the vast amount of culture because of the variety of immigrant populations, and the Eastern Market, a year round farmers market.
