As of June 1, 2018, Mount Vernon At Home is thrilled to welcome our new Executive Director, Erica Herbin Frazier. Erica comes to Mount Vernon At Home after seventeen years as a Clinical Case Manager at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital.
In her role as Executive Director for Mount Vernon At Home, Erica brings a wealth of knowledge to an established non-profit that benefits our community at large and serves our senior community. In the past almost two decades, Erica has become known for her exceptional skills navigating care options, positive outcomes, and extensive connections in the local healthcare provider network. Along with her background in helping patients maximize their benefits, Erica is committed to building on the momentum of the growing village movement and keeping our members connected to community resources while living active, fulfilled, independent lives at home.
The "Village Movement" comes naturally to Erica. She was born and raised in Jamestown, Kansas, a tight-knit town of approximately 300 people, in a county of 10,000. She says, "I am excited for the opportunity to share my combined knowledge of Mount Vernon area resources and care options, with my understanding and commitment to help seniors age in place, and the importance of community connectedness in making that happen".
Erica is an undergraduate alumna of Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska with degrees in Social Work and Theology. She earned her Master’s in Social Work from George Mason University with a focus on community program development. She's been a resident of the Mount Vernon community since 2000, is a licensed Social Worker by the Commonwealth of Virginia, and holds the distinguished ACM Certification from the American Case Management Association.
Erica currently resides in Wellington with her husband, Erik Frazier, Chief Operating Officer for the Anderson Orthopedic Clinic, and their two sons Ben and Shep. Erica remains a dedicated volunteer for the Basilica School of Saint Mary in Old Town, Fort Hunt Little League and the Nova Ice Dogs youth ice hockey program.
