Erica Kobbe was born and raised a theosophical hippie in the small town of Ojai in Southern California. Her roots are deeply tied to an artistic upbringing; however, she felt most at home outdoors, most of all while gazing at the night sky. Erica is joyfully devoted to being a life-long learner, with a passion for studying psychology, consciousness, and anything having to do with pushing the pinnacles of human capacities. She obtained her Master’s Degree in Transformational Psychology from the University of Philosophical Research and placed a special emphasis on Consciousness Studies during this endeavor. She is currently the Senior Annual Giving Officer for Sacramento State, working to support the academic and regional advancement of that community through fundraising and charitable contributions.
