Erica Webster

Bio

Erica Webster (she/her) is a copywriter and communications consultant who specializes in working with non-profits to translate their mission into a cohesive and compelling call to action. She believes the best writing is “heartspun”: great stories told with both passion and purpose. From world-leading hospitals to grassroots organizations, Erica’s words have raised millions of dollars to help non-profits change the world for the better.

With more than a decade of experience in communications and development, including six years in the social housing sector, Erica holds a Master of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership along with a Bachelor of Arts in Women’s and Gender Studies from Carleton University. She also earned her Diploma in Public Relations (Honours) from Algonquin College, sparking her love of a good communications strategy.

Erica is the Vice-President of the Ten Oaks Project, a charitable and volunteer-driven organization that engages and connects children and youth from 2SLGBTQ+ identities, families, and communities. She lives with her wife and their two rambunctious kids in Ottawa, on the unceded, unsurrendered Territory of the Anishinabe Algonquin Nation. In her generally non-existent free time, you can find Erica nerding out over home decor and abandoning craft projects despite her best intentions.
