Read her story and what she loves about the suburban life.
Not only did Suburban Jungle Strategist ERICA TUSCANO make a move from the city to the suburbs, she went from New York City to Plano, Texas. And now this mom of three is helping Dallas area families—and families from everywhere—carve out an amazing life in the suburbs, just like she’s done!
University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS
MOST RECENT JOB BEFORE SUBURBAN JUNGLE
COO at Sensible Sitters. Before that, she was a Director of Client Strategy at Viacom.
WHAT SHE APPLIES FROM HER PREVIOUS CAREER TO HER WORK WITH SUBURBAN JUNGLE
“I love fixing things, planning things, strategizing and creating order from chaos. I love taking a messy situation and throw everything into the mix, be it media objectives, budgets, small business personnel and reporting needs or mountains of project deliverables. Then, I love to sort through it all and organize the thoughts, needs and wants and create a clear strategy to make it all work. Seeing a plan in action brings me joy!”
WHAT SHE LOVES MOST ABOUT WORKING AT SUBURBAN JUNGLE
“I love helping families discover their place in North Texas. The place where they will find their ‘people,’ see their children thrive and and feel most at home.”
WHAT SHE LOVES MOST ABOUT WORKING WITH SUBURBAN JUNGLE FAMILIES“The transition to or between the suburbs is full of excitement and uncertainty. I love being a part of that excitement and witnessing our families find their groove!”
ABOUT HER FAMILY
“We have a crazy, awesome, funny and very blessed family! My husband, Michael, is in private wealth management and in his ‘spare time’ he enjoys triathlon training and fishing. Together, we have three children. Letta is nearly 6-years-old. She’s our future first grader and constant question asker. Gray is four-years-old, sweet and always on high speed—and high volume. Rhett is 4-months-old and the cherry on top of our family. He’s the smiliest baby ever.”
WHERE SHE MOVED FROM
Erica made the long haul—from New York City to Plano, Texas!
WHERE SHE CALLS HOME NOW
WHEN IT ALL HAPPENED
The family moved from NYC to Plano in January 2015—and hasn’t looked back!
WHY SHE CHOSE PLANO
“If I had been asked three years ago, if my family would ever in a million years be living in Plano, Texas, my answer would have been an emphatic ‘NO.’ I grew up in the neighboring suburb and had no intention of moving back. We reached our tipping point in New York City and agreed we wanted to simplify our big crazy life and focus on family and becoming part of the fabric of a community. To my complete surprise, Plano offered us endless options to do just that. We live within a few miles of our extended family, nurturing schools and our neighbors have become ‘our people.’”
WHAT SHE’D TELL CITY FAMILIES CONSIDERING MAKING A MOVE
“The grass IS actually greener—trust me!”
WHY SHE WORKS FOR SUBURBAN JUNGLE
“I love my Texas life deeply. Working for Suburban Jungle allows me to help families navigate the fast-changing North Texas suburbs to help them find a place where they, too, can create a Texas life they love.”
