Alicia brings 30+ years of management consulting experience working with an array of clients in the utility, education, and nonprofit sectors.  She has worked with many clients around the United States and has developed a network of seasoned colleagues who share her commitment to technical excellence, quality, and care for client engagement and delivery.  Her consulting philosophy is relationally undergirded with a sense of hospitality for her clients and client contexts where she continually asks how this client can best be served.  At the end of the day, she wants to be seen as someone who contributes 110% to a project, likes to have a good laugh, and truly cares about a client's future.  

When not working, Alicia is a street art and graffiti researcher and documentarian, she travels around the world, grids a city, and then strives to document the public art phenomena within that city. Armed with a map and a cell phone camera, she walks around the city, takes pictures of the urban scene, and then researches artists, art collectives, and who is writing or painting within a city. She’s traveled to >25 cities around the world, amassed >10,000 photos, and loves exploring, meeting artists, and researching. A percentage of each consulting project revenue is allocated to support public art projects and artists.

Alicia loves to travel, explore cities, read, and spend time with her hubby and two dogs:  Lovee and Little Bit.  Jon and she support locally owned businesses along with education and arts related projects.
