Originally from Colorado, Alicia has now spent a few years in Utah avoiding the question: “Do you ski?” (She’s only gone snowboarding once in her life; and, while she tries to avoid the question, she is open to trying it again!). Prior to her position as Assistant Director of College Counseling and AP Coordinator at Waterford, Alicia collected years of experience advising high school students and returning adults with postsecondary endeavors and processes. Alicia holds two Master’s degrees: one in Curriculum and Instruction and one in School Counseling, and has spent her most recent years as a practicing school counselor at West High School. She currently serves on the University of Utah Admissions Advisory Board, and has presented nationally on high school to college transitions. Her love for social impact, fostering supportive student relationships, social emotional wellness, and postsecondary transition has been the focus of her career. When she isn’t diving into academia, Alicia loves reading various genres of novels, watching The Bachelor/Bachelorette, playing (or, at least attempting to play) video games, and practicing yoga.
