Erica Orrison, Owner/Strategic-Partner
As the proud owner and Strategic-Partner of the PrideStaff St. Louis Metro office, my number one focus is to connect St. Louis businesses with talented job seekers. Before joining the staffing industry, I enjoyed a 15 year career in the healthcare industry. Now I have expert knowledge in start-up business/product launch, training and coaching, as well as manufacturing and distribution of medical devices and products. From nuts to bolts, I understand how important every step of the business process is.
I have been recognized over 20 times in my career for exceeding expectations and achieving goals. I continue to enjoy transferring that drive and enthusiasm to the staffing world, bringing great focus to the importance of building a lasting network of clients and candidates.
I currently volunteer as the Business Development Chairperson for the Project Inc. Board of Directors. Project Inc. is a non-profit workshop dedicated to helping special needs adults have fulfilling work opportunities. I am also a member of the Creve Coeur Chamber of Commerce where I help to support local business.
As a native to St. Louis, I am happy to share where I went to high school, Hazelwood East, equally happy to share with you my love for my Alma Mater, Missouri Tigers as well as my St. Louis Cardinals.
