Erika DornfeldProgram Manager – Midwest RegionProgram
Originally from Wyoming, Erika Dornfeld spent high school in rural north Idaho before attending Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA. There she earned a BS in Biology, while minoring in both Religion and Publishing and Printing Arts. In 2009, she moved to the Midwest to do LVC in Chicago. After volunteering with LVC for two years in Chicago at an interfaith environmental organization, she attended the University of Chicago Divinity School. Her focus was on environmental ethics and theology from a post-modern perspective. In 2012, she received an international ministries study grant to survey faith-based ngo’s in Tanzania involved in climate change mitigation and adaptation. After graduating from Divinity School, Erika served as the director of the New Faces of Ministry Project, an initiative of the Center for Faith and Service at McCormick Seminary. Erika re-joins LVC much more adept at biking in the city than when she arrived six years ago, and is excited to have returned to the organization that first brought her Chicago.
Contact Erika for information about LVC programming, placements or events in Milwaukee or Chicago.
