Director – Human Resources
Ericka Jenkins joined Valerie Wilson Travel in 2016 as Human Resources Manager following a human resources career in construction and public relations. She has since played a key role in growing VWT’s human resources and employee support in line with the vision of VWT. Ericka believes that employees are her clients and she is here to serve.
After attending both Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, and Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, where she graduated with a degree in the social sciences and psychology, Ericka began a career in interior design at a luxury design firm in the Upper East Side. She then transitioned into an insurance/employee benefits role, where she worked on the front line dealing with clients and fielding many HR related questions as an advisor for compliance related issues. This sparked Ericka’s interest in HR and led her to pursue a PHR certification.
When not on a quest for the most beautiful beaches, Ericka enjoys cooking for friends and family on the weekends. She never passes up the opportunity to host a dinner party or entertain her friends’ children with paint and glitter!
