Alicia was born in Chicago and spent her formative years in the Chicagoland suburbs. Her love for Jesus sparked alongside a campfire when she was nearly 8 years old at Rockford Christian Camp. From ages 8 to 18, Alicia lived for the moments spent camping and learning more about her faith. For her undergraduate degree, Alicia attended DePaul University and studied Elementary Education with a concentration in Visual Art. Shortly after undergrad, she landed her first teaching position and has been teaching ever since. Alicia studied Technology in Education and earned a graduate degree from National Louis University. She now teaches middle school Visual Art/Computer Science and is excited to be a part of the Kid City team. Alicia lives on the south side of Chicago where she loves taking bike rides with her wonderful husband Daniel and adorable daughter Lucy.
