Erika Milena Yalowitz
I am a full time worker and full time volunteer. I love serving my neighbors from the Board of my homeowners’ association. I am also Vice-President of the Providence District Council (PDC), Corresponding Secretary at the Fairfax Federation and member of the Emerging Leaders Council of the Tysons Partnership.
My favorite things to do include activities that help people or the environment: teaching English to immigrant adults, volunteering at homeless shelters or doing trash cleanups in water streams or public places. It is always a good day to make an impact in the community! For this reason I aspire to represent the Providence District on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.
Growing up in Colombia during a time of war inspired me to make a difference in my community. I studied two bachelors in Political Science and International Relations and graduate studies in Political Management and Governance. I have traveled around South America and Europe, where I worked on human rights’ campaigns in the early 2000s.
I work as a Court Officer in a neighboring county and live in the Tysons area of Providence District with my husband, young daughter and German Shepherd Dog, Titus.
