Erica Lemm

What advice would you give your college self?

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone because your comfort zone is just that- comfortable, and nothing ever grows there. 


What is the greatest advice your mentor has given you?

Never say ‘no’ to an opportunity if you can make it work and complete the obligation at the best of your ability. Every bit of experience and every person you meet helps shape you and your future. 


What does the Rosemont mission mean to you?

Building a community of respect and humanity through the pursuit of education.


Would you rather be invisible or be able to read minds?

I would rather be able to read minds in order to engage in more effective conversations.


Who would you like to show a little love to in the Rosemont Community?

Shout out to Rosemont's phenomenal Director of Athletics, Lynn Rothenhoefer ( or Coach Lynn to some)! I revealed this question to Lynn and mentioned that I had better write about her if want to keep my job! All jokes aside, she's my obvious choice. Her passion and energy is incredibly contagious and has created an environment that people enjoy working in. I've never met anyone more willing to do what's necessary for the well-being, positive experience, and future of a student-athlete.


Campus Involvement: Attending sports games, mentoring student athletes


Name 5 things you love (other than your family) or love doing?

  • Soccer
  • My cat (Riley)
  • Crafts
  • Traveling
  • The game of Yahtzee

What is your favorite city/town? Why?

The country of Denmark is my favorite place in the world. I’ve traveled there twice and stayed for a month during one of those trips. It’s in Denmark that I’ve met some of the most kind and passionate people.


Who or what inspires you?

The US Women’s National Soccer Team- the winner of 3 World Cup Titles and 4 Olympic Gold Medals despite being given less resources than their counterpart while empowering females everywhere. I traveled to Vancouver for the most recent World Cup in 2015 as well as attended the NYC ticker tape parade in celebration of their victory in the tournament. This was the first parade NYC provided for an all-female team.

What is the furthest you have ever traveled?

The furthest place I’ve traveled is Europe. I studied abroad in England where I played soccer and have also visited many other countries within the continent. I’ll be traveling to New Zealand and Australia this December.
