Bellevue academy adds manager to facilitate employment opportunities for students

Skillspire recently hired Erika Price

Skillspire, a Bellevue-based technical academy offering the most in-demand skills training to underrepresented populations in the high-tech sector, recently hired Erika Price as its business relations manager. Recognizing the high demand for software developers and other technical workers in Seattle, Skillspire empowers its students through affordable and accessible courses that include web development, cyber security and data science.

Price comes to Skillspire with experience working in high tech, having spent over a decade working in product and program management for Microsoft, Symantec and Intel. She has a bachelor’s of science from Santa Clara University and an MBA from Washington State University. More recently, she completed Reboot Seattle, the career accelerator focused on women returning from a career break.

Price’s focus will be on pursuing corporate relationships to allow companies to take advantage of the diverse and talented pipeline of Skillspire students through apprenticeships and sponsorships. She will also work with local community organizations looking for effective and efficient training for their specific populations in need of better paying employment with opportunities for advancement.
