Dr. Erika maldonado
ENTREPRENEUR | TECH PROFESSIONAL | TRAVELER | LATINA
I am passionate about advancements in technology and empowering women in leadership and entrepreneurship.
With over a decade working in higher education my experience has spanned from educational media production, program launches, relationship management, remote team management, project management and more.
Most recently I have started my own company with my sister, Lexi Maldonado, focusing on post-operative care for clients in Beverly Hills. It is exciting for me to bring the skills that I have cultivated in media in tech into such a niche nursing vertical!
I believe in feedback and reviews. If we can Yelp our next meal, then we should be able to accept feedback about ourselves.
Erika is an exemplary lead! Over the past several months, I have had the pleasure of working under her management and with a team of developers. Erika is encouraging, supportive, and always open to ideas and suggestions. I have learned a lot from Erika both as a person and a leader, and through her guidance and mentorship, she has helped me improve as a professional in many ways. She has a unique ability to structure the team’s workload in a way that allows our teammates to demonstrate their professional skills to the full extent. It has been an absolute pleasure to be managed by Erika, and I look forward to seeing the team continue to grow under her keen vision and strong leadership!
Erika is an extremely well-rounded, compassionate, effective team manager and leader at 2U. I’ve had the privilege of reporting to Erika since 2019 and have benefited greatly from it. What makes Erika stand out is her breadth of industry/company knowledge, her expertise in data and learning technologies (with an emphasis in video analytics data) and her ability to let teams and individuals flourish, while lending a helping hand when needed. Even during the most challenging times, she is a grounding force, a problem-solver and a fierce advocate for ensuring that our team is supported and heard. I would gladly recommend working with Erika on any project or team.
