Mrs. Erica Hill
2022-2023 Past President
As a mother, Erica understands the tremendous trust parents place in our schools to prepare our children for the future. As a spouse of an educator, she understands the dedication, passion, and purpose teachers and administrators invest in our students every day. And as a member of the LMH Health Foundation team, Erica understands the importance of accountability and stewardship.
Erica graduated from the University of Kansas with an undergraduate degree in Human Biology and earned a master’s degree in Healthcare Leadership from Friends University. In addition to her role as the finance and operations manager for a growing non-profit foundation, Erica is also engaged in the broader, strategic work of LMH Health, including health equity.
As a 2018 graduate of Leadership Lawrence, a highly competitive leadership development program through The Chamber, Erica had the opportunity to learn more about local issues – education, health care, social services, communications, arts, economic development. She has since leveraged this experience in her professional role at LMH Health and more broadly throughout the community.
Erica takes a collaborative approach in everything she does, seeking to ensure stakeholders feel connected, heard and valued. She recently facilitated a stronger collaboration between the school district and LMH Health by creating a new program, LMH Health Leadership Academy, to provide paid internships to students in the community. She stewards resources carefully, looking for creative ways to stretch resources and ensure the greatest impact for the most people.
She volunteers her time by serving on numerous committees and advisory councils. She’s also held a number of board leadership roles, most recently serving as president of the board for the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence.
In 2019, Erica was named one of the top 40 young professionals in healthcare philanthropy in the country by the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy.
