Erica Ligeski, Marketing Engineer on the Acquia.com website is another of the many Drupalists with a non-technical background. Her path took her from performance and dance, to arts management, to total geekery! Just like me, at some point along the way she needed a website for an arts project and fell in love with Drupal. The rest is history.
Erica was one of the very successful first group put through the Acquia U Drupal training program. "Successful" in this case means that all the trainees were hired as full-time Acquians following the course.
