Following her graduation from Quincy High School in 2006, Erickson, the daughter of Inez Robbins and the late Robert Robbins of Quincy, enlisted as a Corpsman with the U.S. Navy. In 2016, the Navy offered her the opportunity to become a nurse. She spent three years enrolled at the University of St. Francis in a nursing program, located in Joliet, Illinois.
Her brother Anthony, also formerly of Quincy, has been serving in the military since 2002.
