As a 15 year old, Brown represent the United States at the 1988 Winter Olympics when curling was a demonstration event. Brown played third on the team, skipped by Lisa Schoeneberg, and the team finished 5th. Brown then had a successful junior career, representing the United States at six (1988, 1989, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994) World Junior Curling Championships, winning silver in 1992 and 1993 and a bronze in 1993.
Erika Brown has participated in sixteen different United States National Championships beginning with a second place finish in 1991. In 1995 she won her first national championships and would go on to compete in the 1995 Brandon World Championships where her team placed fifth with a 4 – 5 record. Her second trip to the world championships proved more successful as her team won the silver medal behind Team Canada. She picked up a second World Championship silver medal in 1999 as the third for Patti Lank's team.
