"I attended a SVN (Social Venture Network) conference in a generic event space in Baltimore last year and was transported elsewhere to embrace the city through the story singing journey by Erica Wheeler as she connected us to its history and people in such an extraordinary way. She has such a gift for sharing the sense of people and place." Leslie Carrere, EKOterra and Restore the Forest
What others are saying
"You are missing out if you aren't trying to book Erica for your upcoming workshop or training event. Her work with the ‘sense of place’ concept through her Soulful Landscape workshop provides excellent hands-on exercises in an area that is so often perceived as intangible, while her keynote was just the dose of inspiration we needed." Kelly Farrell, Assistant Chief of Interpretation, Arkansas State Parks
"Dear John: The Partners in the Parks program at Belmont on Saturday was an enriching experience for me and others I talked to at the event. Thank you so much for putting a great deal of thought and creativity into the event. Erica Wheeler and her music were the icing on the cake. I bought all her CD's and found her lyrics and style so on-point for the event, thank you again." Betsy Singer, Legacy Leadership Environmental Institute
