Erika Shepard, RN MSN, has spent the last decade following her passion for helping people optimize their nervous systems to elevate their mental and emotional well-being.
Erika received her Bachelor’s of Nursing at Arizona State University and her Master’s of Nursing at Georgetown University, where she was a Summa Cum Laude graduate of both. She has also received training and certification through the Center for Mind-Body Medicine and The ThetaHealing Institute. She spent her career as a psychiatric, trauma ICU, forensic nurse, family nurse practitioner, and mind-body healer. Working with people at their most vulnerable showed her the powerful connection between the body, mind, and heart. This led her to the healing modalities she uses today that reprogram and reset an individual’s subconscious nervous system patterns, helping to balance the mind, body, and heart.
In addition to serving at Thrive, Erika is an international speaker (including TedX speaker), business consultant, and writer.
Erika lives between Charlotte and the Asheville area, enjoys experimenting with minimal living, being outdoors, being a fashion and beauty enthusiast, world traveling, eating delicious food, and spoiling her cats.
