A fourth-generation Californian, Alicia's educational foundation and passion for teaching were cultivated during the years she spent attending, then teaching at, Stevenson School. Growing up on the Monterey Peninsula, she developed a love of the outdoors, a tie to the Pacific and a fervor for backpacking in the Los Padres National Forest.
Alicia has spent her entire adult life living in dorms, including over a decade on campuses in northern New England. At Colby, Dartmouth, and most recently as Assistant Dean of Students and English Department Chair at Dublin School, she learned to love the rigors and traditions of New England educational communities. As Maya Angelou so wisely wrote, however, The ache for home lives in all of us, and she felt her roots in California tugging her gently yet firmly back to the west coast.
Alicia now lives (in a dorm, of course) on the Mesa with her husband Ron, son Will, and their lovable, if not brilliant, yellow lab Winston. In her time outside of the classroom, she enjoys running, reading, hiking, camping and traveling with her family.
