Erica Howard

VP of Talent

Born and raised in St. Louis, I couldn’t imagine leaving the midwest for college, so I attended the University of Missouri for undergrad (M-I-Z!) where I developed a love for organizational psychology and college football. I booked a trip to visit a friend in Dallas the summer after graduation, and after my first taste of queso, the rest was history. Shortly after, I made Texas home and started my career at EY in the experienced hire recruiting department.

I quickly realized my passion for finding recent grads like myself a home in the working world, and thus made the transition to campus recruiting for EY within my first year. My career in campus ran the gamut of talent functions, from the initial stages of sourcing to interviews to onboarding and orientation. Most importantly, I learned just how valuable fostering strong relationships is in building a great team, which ultimately drew me to Embark. I felt energized and inspired by each person I met, and was eager to help contribute to the company’s seemingly endless growth opportunity. I’m thrilled to help the team grow while remaining intentional, authentic, and invested in our people.

When I’m not on campus, I love practicing yoga, traveling, reading, and spending time with family and friends. I’m always down for a spontaneous trip and a good happy hour!
