Erica Escalante

 

My name was Erica Deese-Dobson, but now it is Erica Escalante. I graduated from Stanford in 1990. While at Stanford, my most memorable experience was Stanford in Krakow, Poland. I studied Russian, Polish and OCS at Stanford. I wrote an Honors thesis in the Dept of Linguistics on Polish forms of address based upon data that I collected while in Krakow. After graduation, I went directly to graduate school at University of Texas at Austin. I started in the Slavic linguistics program, moved to the Linguistics program, left academia, and finished my MA degree in 2000 at Cal State Northridge in Linguistics with an emphasis on Teaching English as a Second Language.
 
I am currently a police officer with Oxnard Police Department. I don't often use any Slavic language skills, but I am a hostage negotiator and may need those Slavic skills one day for that. I have used Russian and Polish a couple of times. One time I helped a Russian woman escape a domestic violence situation.
