Erica is part of the WOBM Hometown Crew. She’s young and she has dreams.  And in some way, we think we’re helping her get closer to her dream.  She wants a bakery/sweet shop and you know what, she’ll have one someday!  But for now she bakes for The Ocean County Breakfast Show every Friday morning and shares her everything home-made goodies!
