Ericka Hill | Purchasing and Estimating Agent | Ravenna Homes | Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA)
Hill has a rich work history in the construction industry, beginning with taking permits for various construction projects at the City of Missouri City. Hill’s first homebuilding experience began with her work at Gehan Homes as a starts coordinator. Next, Hill joined the Meritage Homes purchasing department. After years of experience, Hill went to work for small homebuilder Greeneco Builders. It was there that Hill realized she wanted to earn a degree and apply it to homebuilding.
Hill now works for Ravenna Homes and was able to achieve the biggest accomplishment to date, creating the Purchasing Department. She was able to create the department and get it running in just six months.
Hill currently serves as the Bay Area Builders Association (BABA) president for the third year in a row and as a board member of the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA). Hill recently became a TAB board director and joined the Professional Women in Building Council (PWB) where she has demonstrated creativity and innovation by coming up with new ideas in hopes of bringing more industry partners to future events. Hill currently volunteers with the event planning committee of the PWB and scouts new and different places to hold events throughout the year. When Hill isn’t planning events, she still supports with her regular attendance at the GHBA Young Professionals outings, along with PWB, BABA, HomeAid Houston, and Volume Builders.
When Hill is not working or at an event, she is spending time with her husband and children. Hill loves going to the beach and hanging out with her large family. Recently, Hill has started skating, trying to skate at least once a month as a bonding experience with her children. To continue her contributions to the homebuilding industry, Hill volunteers her time and mentors children looking to make homebuilding their career.
