Happy Attendees & Clients

of Erica's Events, Classes, & Coaching!

What attendees are saying about  Erica's:


Thank you so much for doing this for us!

I don't go to the bars and so it's hard to meet new people to date.


I made 2 of my friends come with me and we had a BLAST. Dancing afterwards with men we had already met was fun too! The pressure was off and we could just have fun.


I'm an introvert. Getting out with Erica's Singles Meet Market group makes it easy to meet people and get out of my comfort zone in a SAFE and easy way!


I'm hoping to connect with at least 2 of the men I met here.

I had a good time talking and 5 minutes seemed to ZIP by so fast.


This is AMAZING. I had a GREAT time!


I had a good friend ( a gal ) who persuaded me to go. 'Go. It will be fun!' she told me.  I really wasn’t sure if I wanted to go. But then I met T. What if I didn’t go?


She said... I had been to only one previous one and did know a couple of my friends would be there.  I left a gathering and decided last minute to go!! Then I met Jeff.  I felt so comfortable going on the date with him two days later because we had already met. I knew there was a spark.  We literally shut the place down talking forever. We talk about how we almost didn't go!!!!  Online dates can take forever just to meet then you are let down after talking forever! We need you!


Online dating can feel very sterile and evaluative. I never got a good sense of who people were from a profile.  Just a checklist of interests that were always very similar to each other.  I felt like I was sorting through stacks of resumes that told me less about a person than an actual resume would.

Speed Dating Spokane felt warm and personal. People were all incredibly welcoming .Everybody I met was a joy to chat with and I got a sense of their personality right away .  There wasn't an internet to get in the way and hide who a person was .  I quickly earned about their values, their sense of humor, how they treat people, all things you just don't get from a profile.  Even at events where I didn't meet somebody special, I had a great time, and left with some new friends.  

When I met A, we knew right away that this was going to be a great thing for us.  We had instant chemistry and wound up spending the whole night talking together.  It wasn't just a list of common interests or a personality test that brought us together. It was the way we played the game of conversation.  We could react and interact, and that made a huge difference in getting to know each other.  We could see how well we fit together right away.

Now we've been together for eight months and we couldn't be happier.  [ update:  they are married now]


❤ C & A met @ our Speed Dating event 11/2019 and got married 2021

When we were [just] doing Speed Dating and self-development classes before COVID, the comment we've heard over & over was:

"This is great! Spokane has nothing like it, and we need singles events like this!"

What attendees are saying about Erica's :


Working with Erica has changed my outlook on dating! I no longer dread it - I actually look forward to being in a relationship while still enjoying being single!


I wish I could carry Erica in my pocket when I talk with my boyfriend. She seems to be able to see both sides so well...she sees both the logical and emotional sides.


Erica is engaging and has a wonderful ability of bringing a group of people together.  She makes you feel comfortable.  She is well prepared and I always take away important information that will help me grow.


It was fun and informative.  Erica was easy and engaging with great perspective and group participation.



Erica is fantastic at making you feel welcome in a room.  Her topics are easy to broach and thought provoking.  To hear others' perspectives on life and looking for answers.  Thank you, Erica, for holding these ROUND TABLE TALKS.



Erica's approach sheds perspective and light on relationship theory in a real and slightly vulnerable way.  It's nice to chat with others regarding intimacy and relationships.



Fun, informative and easy conversation.  Erica is very easy to talk with and speaks an open mind/dialogue.  Very comfortable environment provided.



What clients are saying about Erica's:


Erica is the most understanding, compassionate, empathetic, and wise person I know. She came into my life during I time I was severely floundering due to some interpersonal relationship issues involving my family, and was able to help me look at things in a way that allowed me to go forward in life no longer stuck in the mire of frustration and sadness. I was able to examine my own place in the situation with her supportive guidance in a way that was nonthreatening and non-judgmental.

As in-tuned to emotions as Erica is, she is also extremely logical and can literally breakdown highly charged situations into “bites” that can be either savored, endured, digested, or purged, whatever your soul is needing at the time. She’s like my own personal sage who has provided wisdom and guidance as I find my way along my personal path. I highly recommend having her walk beside you as well if you’re a little lost and searching for your way to get back on your own path in this journey called life.


I feel so much better! My life is already going better and I'm so happy. Thank you for your coaching on the Law of Attraction and intentions!


Erica Sandquist is a great coach! 

Sign up for this program and see results this year!


Working with Erica had a long lasting impact on me. She taught me to be better organized, to be proactive in preventing issues, and to better communicate when issues did arise. To this day, I stay in contact with her and reach out for personal and professional guidance. She has been such a positive influence in both areas of my life.


Over the years, I have attended several of Erica’s relationship classes and found them to be very helpful in navigating the dating world.

 Once in a relationship, Erica’s coaching helped me make good decisions and identify my unhealthy patterns. Now, at age 50, I'm in my first healthy relationship thanks to her patiently working with me to identify heathy and unhealthy patterns from attachment style. I wholeheartedly recommend Erica for your personal growth needs!


What colleagues said about Erica's


I've always said if I opened a school, Erica would be the first teacher I'd hire.  It was my pleasure to teach with Erica Sandquist at two different schools. She has many strengths, but I would list being able to communicate with others as one of her greatest abilities. Both of the schools we taught in were inner-city and she was able to connect and help every student that had the good fortune to be in her classroom. She is a rare individual and able to connect and verbally communicate what she has learned and pass it on to others at the highest level!  I've worked with many teachers over two decades, but Erica stands out as one of the best.  Very organized, great atmosphere, excellent discipline, good sense of humor. If I started a school, I'd hire her out of the gate.  


I have known Erica since September 1998, and have observed her both in the classroom, and in her associations with staff and parents.

Erica is a visionary teacher with a great feeling for the future.  She works very well with others, being able to quickly establish clear and open lines of communication and welcomes the challenge of team building.  Erica also has a strong dedication to kids and to the education process, showing a particular talent in her ability to find problems and solutions when alternatives, information and objections are unclear.

While constantly striving to maximize the performance of all, she thinks in terms of "do's" rather than in terms of "don'ts".  It is my sincerely belief  that selecting Erica as a staff member would result in improved learning for all students.  She is a true professional.


May 2000

As a Curriculum Specialist, I had the opportunity to work with Erica for two years. Erica is an excellent teacher.  Her dediction, hard work, knowledge and ability to work with the most challenging of learners are outstanding.

Erica is well respected among her peers for her excellent classroom management and ability to connect with children that have been challenging to other teachers in the building.  She has excellent ideas and works hard to implement them to the highest standard.  She is willing to learn new ideas and works hard to implement them effectively.  I give my recommendation of Erica.


June 2000

I had the honor of working with Erica on a daily basis.  As a 4th grade ELL teacher, I have team taught and collaborated with Erica every day for two years.  Her gifts of true caring, organization and the quality of her instruction in a difficult urban environment makes her an excellent teacher.

Over the course of a year, I watched her students grow into responsive, independent learners.  Her rapport and genuine love of students have created a caring, cooperative and supportive environment for student learning.   During the week students engage in hands-on, standards based instruction.  Instead of filling out worksheets, students are creating projects that show relevance to the instruction and their lives.

I saw Erica take an active roll in the lives of students at our school.  She connects with parents and communicates both the challenges and successes of their child.  This connection creates a vital link between parent, teacher, and child.  Students who have walked into her class in September behind academically and emotionally unstable find stability in the classroom.  Students leave her class with self-confidence and academic readiness.  

On a personal level, I have worked as a teaching partner with Erica every day.  It has been a joy to plan lessons and teach with her.  Erica's creativity, sense of humor and organization are natural qualities that make our team teaching so effortless.

Students, parents and teachers at our school respect Erica as a caring, hard-working individual.  She has years of experience working with children in a difficult environment, an excellent relationship with students, and a gifted ability as a teacher.


May 2000

It is with great enthusiasm and ease that I endorse Erica.  I have known Erica as a 4th and 5th grade teacher in St. Paul, Minnesota.  I was a counselor for Project KOFI, a culturally specific program serving African-American boys who are experiencing serious difficulty in school, personal relationships or other areas of their lives.  In the past school year I had the opportunity to work with several boys in Erica's class since the fall of 1999.

I believe that one of Erica's greatest strengths is her ability to build positive relationships with the students whom she teaches.  She has shown strong interest in and caring for each of the students in her class.  She is skilled at classroom management and helping her students learn how to think through difficult situations and make positive choices for themselves.  This, in addition to her ability to teach curriculum, is an important component in teaching children that come from various cultures, learning styles, and socio-economic backgrounds.


June 2000

Ms. Sandquist was hired as a substitute teacher in February 1997 and taught in our school [Boys Totem Town--Security Unit] through May 1997.  During that period, she taught a varied group of students.  The age range was from 10-17 years.  All of these students were working below grade level and had defined learning disabilities.  In addition, many of these students had behavior problems at their home schools.  As challenging a group as this was, Ms. Sandquist did an outstanding job in managing her classroom and creating a positive learning environment.  She was not reluctant to confront disruptive behavior and her expectations for her students were firm and consistent.

Ms. Sandquist developed positive working relationships with her colleagues in the school program, and with the facility staff.  She was a positive influence on the entire program.  I would, without reservation, recommend Ms. Sandquist.  She is a quality person and teacher, and will only improve with experience and time.
