Erika Alverson was born and raised in the Denver, Colorado metropolitan area.
Erika’s family has been in Denver for many years. In fact, her grandfather, father, and uncle were all Denver Police officers. Her father retired from the Denver Police Department 10 years ago, after an amazing 33 years of service.
Following graduation from Columbine High School in 1998, Erika attended the University of Denver where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science in 2002.

After receiving her J.D. in law school, Erika passed the California bar exam and was hired at the firm of McCarthy & Holthus, LLP, where she clerked during law school. While in San Diego however, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and Erika decided to move back to Colorado to spend more time with her family, recognizing that time with loved ones is limited and truly valuable.
