Erika Lockhart

22 POSTS 1 COMMENTS
My name is Erika Lockhart and I am married to my best friend and favorite pain in the butt, Chris. We have two children - our boy, Zane, who is 6 years old going on 21, and Finnley who is almost 1 years old. We also have one 4 – legged child - Nelson a pit bull/German shepherd mix and we just recently lost our beloved American Bulldog, Laney. I was born and raised in Harvey, on the Bestbank, but now live in Metairie. I am full time employee for a healthcare consulting company where I lead the New Jersey Market in provider engagement efforts from my home office here in NOLA. I enjoy taking vacations, going on road trips, my monthly girls dinner club and my favorite hobby is spending the weekends with my kids and the family. Odd facts about me - I love watching Judge Judy, I want to be on jury duty as much as possible, I have an obsession with mayonnaise and I love doing homework.
