Erica Vinskie

Erica L. Vinskie (also, Vinskie-Cinelli) is an artist, designer, editor, writer, teacher, and entrepreneur.

Erica teaches composition and humanities at Albright College and Penn State University. She holds an M.A. (2011) and a B.A. (2005) summa cum laude in Religion from Temple University where she also taught the upper-level elective, "Religion and Science."

Over the last decade and a half, Erica has edited and designed print and digital publications for nonprofit and academic entities in Southeastern Pennsylvania. From 2005 to 2011, she served as editor, designer, and lastly, director of publications for Metanexus Institute.

Erica would not be so successful in her professional and academic endeavors if she did not continually nurture her creativity. Like others in her family, she paints and pursues other arts and crafts. In 2014, she turned one of her hobbies, perfumery and skincare formulation, into a full fledged business. Learn more by visiting
