Alicia has had a lifelong journey with ADHD and understands first hand the many challenges it brings. Because of this, she has become passionate about helping others understand the different ways to support their neurodivergent brain, harness the beauty/gifts it brings, and has dedicated her life’s work to supporting others. She integrates effective holistic mindfulness strategies and reflection to improve overall well-being and support executive functioning skills. She combines her love of neuroscience, education, and movement, in her professional and personal life. Her favorite thing about coaching is empowering others to recognize their own unique ability to successfully achieve their goals.
Alicia has a vast experience with supporting children, educators, and parents with effective strategies to support children with ADHD and all that comes with it. She also has experience coaching adults with various aspects of their life, as well as helping them find ways to implement grounding and mindfulness in this busy world. She has over 10 years combined experience working as an educator and a coach, specializing in working with children and people who are neurodivergent.
Alicia enjoys spending time in nature whether it be camping, kayaking, biking, exploring, or hiking. She loves to dance, play games, connect with friends and family, and travel. She also enjoys quiet nights at home with her family and her three furry pets (cat, dog and rabbit).
