Alicia has been working as a TRIO SSS Academic Advisor since December, 2013, and knows she has the best job in the world because of the students she works with. Alicia’s favorite event on campus is TRIO’s End of Year party because the staff get to celebrate their students’ hard work and send students off on their next great academic adventure. When not working, Alicia enjoys spending time with her two children, reading, running, and watching Sci-Fi shows.

Alicia’s educational journey, in some respects, echoes a similar footprint as many of our students. She began her educational journey at Inver Hills and then transferred to Hamline University where she majored in German K-12 and Social Studies 5-12 Education with minors in both Education and History. She completed half a Master’s degree but put it on pause until her two children are grown. She chose to come back to IHCC because she benefitted from the excellent education she received while a student and firmly believes in the power of the community college system.
