Alicia moved to Hillsborough from the foothills of NC with her family in June 2019. She is thankful to have grown up in a loving family with freedom to play in nature. She realized in high school that many children were not able to have the same experiences, therefore developed the desire to bring love, connection, and meaningful experiences to children in her community. Alicia began her career as an Early Childhood Educator in 2009. Having graduated with an Associate Degree in Early Childhood education in 2011 and working in a variety of school environments, she is happy to have found the Little School where she feels children thrive in the Reggio philosophy. Alicia is an advocate for children in her community and has a passion for assisting them in their exploration and learning through nature and activities of each individual child’s interests.

When Alicia has free time outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her children and family. She also likes to play games, read, explore the outdoors and travel.
