Erika Siegal was born and raised in central Connecticut. She received her Associates Degree in Science before moving to Boston to complete her studies in Art Therapy at Emmanuel College. Erika is happily married to Sean and they have four children, a son and a three daughters. Erika helps coordinate benefits for their family business, but her real passion is her healthy, happy, beautiful children. They are what led her to One Mission. Erika met Ashley Haseotes, founder of One Mission, on a fateful day at their pediatricians office. Meeting Ashley and hearing her inspiring story was how Erika became interested in giving back. She always had philanthropic tendencies, but never an outlet or a calling. This was it; this chance meeting was the beginning of a wonderful friendship, as well as a partnership to help make a difference in the lives of pediatric cancer patients and their families. Erika has been involved with one Mission since the beginning. She is responsible for our monthly toy deliveries to the treasure chest on the oncology floor at Children’s Hospital Boston. She takes great pride in knowing how the toys, and other programs One Mission funds, put smiles on the children’s faces.
