Erica Alexander MA, MS
Director of Food and Nutrition
Erica has been with Carolina House since 2010 where she started as a Residential Patient Assistant. Even before joining the culinary team Erica was leading groups and assisting the registered dietitian. Eventually, she became a full-time culinary member and began leading not just culinary groups but other specialty groups on meal planning, grocery shopping and other ways to be successful for life outside of residential treatment. She still continues to lead these groups and enjoys teaching people one on one and in group settings, using an integrative approach in and out of the kitchen.
Erica has Masters degrees in both Nutrition and Psychology. Her passion is working towards strengthening the mind/ body connection through nutrition and developing a positive relationship with food.
