  • Summary
    Hi! I'm Alicia.

    A natural-born problem solver with a superpower for getting it done, I have a penchant for all things innovation. An Emergency Manager by trade, I've had the opportunity to count Hurricane Sandy, Super Bowl 50, COVID-19, and a wildfire or two in my portfolio of responses.

    I've changed the culture of preparedness by using human-centered design to create and it's open-source sister, City72. I build resilient community collaborations that drive operational efficiency and long-term organizational continuity while navigating regulation and politics with ease. I know exercising the power to convene (in person or virtually) is the cornerstone of building meaningful change.

    Curiosity is my jam and my favorite question is... How might we?

    I look forward to our connection.
  • Highlights
    I could start by telling you I'm the Director of Emergency Management at the number one public university in the United States or I could share that my 16 years of experience in local government has helped countless communities become more disaster resilient. All impressive feats.
    But here is the heart of my story - my experience in emergency management, local government, and higher education has led me to one conclusion, I am a helper. I care about protecting the people and places we love. Full stop.
