Alicia is the VISTA Community Outreach and Partnerships Coordinator at Root and Rebound. She received their B.A. in sociology at UC Berkeley in 2018. Alicia participated in a senior honors seminar where she focused her research on gendered dynamics of alternative relationship styles, more specifically consensual non-monogamies. Alicia was a reentry student who transferred from community college before attending UCB. Being a former college dropout and returning to school has shown Alicia the importance of second chances.
Due to her own past struggles, Alicia is passionate about working with recovering addicts and those who hope to transform their lives for the better. She has worked as a clinical technician at The Camp Recovery Center where she facilitated therapeutic groups for those struggling with substance use.
In her spare time Alicia likes working with recovering addicts, practicing contact improvisation, going on hikes, cooking healthy meals and shaking a leg queer dance parties.
