Erica Mielke

Director of Finance

Erica has assisted small businesses and nonprofits in the Berkshires for over 20 years. She studied Accounting at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN, where she received a Bachelor of Business Administration and Master of Science in Accountancy. After working for 2 years in Chicago doing cost analysis for private corporations, she realized that her soul simply could not continue helping big firms make money. She quit the world of corporate accounting and has never looked back. Erica currently lives with her fabulous son in Great Barrington, where she was born. Before coming full-circle to settle back into the Berkshires, she lived in rural central Florida, South Bend, Chicago, Madrid, and most recently, Oaxaca, Mexico. She has a passion for languages and has taught English and Spanish (and dabbled with Italian and Portuguese). Erica enjoys reading, joining too many book groups, and watching movies in her free time.
