Erica Tricarico, a graduate of Howard University and the master’s program in journalism at CUNY, will join the staff of AHCJ on Monday, Sept. 20, as managing editor.
Tricarico comes to the organization from MJH Life Sciences in Cranbury, N.J., where she managed an editorial team producing content on animal care. Before that, she was a freelance health care reporter for Everyday Health.
She will produce and edit content to support AHCJ’s many member services, including events, core topic materials and other web-based resources as well as news releases, conference programs and newsletters.
“We are really excited to have Erica join us and round out our staff,” said Executive Director Andrew Smiley. “This will be the first time AHCJ is fully staffed since my tenure began, and Erica brings a lot of complementary experience and digital skills that will really benefit the organization and our members. Please join us in welcoming her to AHCJ!”
Tricarico will work remotely from her home in Cedar Grove, N.J., though she will spend a week training with AHCJ staff in the organization’s offices at the Missouri School of Journalism.
