Hi there! I am Erica (she/her/hers) an actor/singer/dancer from Long Beach, California. Since childhood, I have always been interested in both the visual and performing arts. I began dance training at the age of 3, singing around 10, and discovered I could do both at the same time my freshman year of high school. I went on to pursue a BFA in Musical Theatre, which was earned from UC Irvine. Other artistic/professional passions of mine include directing, theatre education, writing, visual art, and clay making. (Check out @schaefferpenandpaper and @schaefferclaymaker for more!)

Off stage, I can usually be found eating lactose-free take out in my car, laughing, updating my planner, finding some sweet deals at a thrift store, or saying "DOG!" very loudly when I see a dog. Thank you for stopping by, enjoy, and feel free to leave a message!
