Erica de la Garza-Lopez

HOWDY! My name is Erica. I am a mom to 3 amazing kiddos: Alex (12), Emma (7) and Sevy (1). Together with my amazing, loving & most importantly patient husband, Marcos, we live in McAllen, Texas. I currently serve on the Board of Trustees for McAllen ISD, the Texas Lyceum & have served on the Tropical Texas Behavioral Health Board, as well as the RGV Food Bank Board of Directors. In 2013, I was a co-chair for the Cattle Baron’s Ball benefiting the American Cancer Society where our committee raised almost 100K for the cause. We love to spend time at South Padre Island, Texas when we have a little free time, but mostly love to veg at home with the kiddos on the couch.
