  • Erica Brooke has had a penchant for home and design since childhood when she'd visit model homes with her parents and watch "This Old House with Bob Villa" with her dad. She enjoys decorating the suburban Philadelphia home where she lives with her husband and family, with the latest project being her daughter's nursery.
  • She has seen just about every episode of HGTV's "Flip or Flop" and saw the Property Brothers live at a 2016 home show.
  • She has written about real estate and design for City Lifestyle magazines and for a luxury homebuilder and has also written about HGTV stars, home décor, and home organization for House Blog's sister brand, The List.


Erica Brooke has nearly 20 years of experience as a professional writer, journalist, and editor, having developed industry expertise in lifestyle topics that include home décor, home organization, and real estate. Also an educator, she teaches reading courses at Bucks County Community College in Bucks County, PA, and previously served as an adjunct professor at Temple University's Fox School of Business and Manor College, where she taught writing courses. She has much experience with other Alb Media brands; she is a feature editor for The List, where she also used to write features and conduct exclusive interviews. She is also a former feature and news editor for Glam and has written features and conducted interviews for Health Digest. When she's not working for Alb Media, she's teaching, working on her book and blog, and reading inspiring memoirs, though, as a new mom, these days, most of her time away from work is spent caring for her daughter, Harper Reese Journi, born in August 2023.


Erica Brooke honed her writing and editing skills while studying communications and journalism at Arcadia University in Glenside, PA, from which she holds a Bachelor of Arts in communications/print media and a minor in marketing.
