Erickson came to Long Beach State from Mater Dei High School, where she spent two years as the junior varsity head coach and an assistant with the varsity squad. In 2007-08, she led her team to a 26-9 overall record.
Erickson has also previously worked as an assistant coach at Mission Prep High School in San Luis Obispo and as a basketball camp instructor across the country.
In college as Michelle Henke, Erickson was a starting guard for Cal Poly, where she served as the team captain. Named the Big West Player of the Week after scoring 21 points against rival UC Santa Barbara as a senior, Erickson also finished her career ranked in the school's top 10 in rebounding despite standing only 5-foot-9.
