Erica Hardbarger is a wife, a mom and a high school science teacher. She never, ever saw herself as a board member of anything, much less an opera company! But when Erica met Josh Wentz through the music ministries at Santa Clarita United Methodist Church, the two nerdy educators clicked. Erica is thrilled to support her friend's vision for music education, and she enjoys the challenge of figuring out just what she can offer to Mission Opera. Currently Erica assists with social media promotion, builds connections with the local high school district and sings with the virtual choir.
