Alicia grew up in Minnesota and Indiana, attending Evangelical churches throughout her youth. Her first experience with the Episcopal Church was through Canterbury USC, the Episcopal campus ministry at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. She began attending All Saints Beverly Hills during her junior year, grateful to find a church where she could explore her faith in new ways.
While at USC, she majored in Neuroscience and minored in French. She has worked in health research for nearly 15 years, with much of the past decade spent at OHSU. In 2019, she received a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree in Biostatistics at the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health, and has been working as a biostatistician ever since. She also teaches an introductory statistics course for MPH students, and she likes trying to make complicated topics approachable.
In 2015, Alicia came to Trinity to teach a church school class for middle school students. Over the past several years, it has been her great privilege to be a part of the Trinity community. She previously worked with the Taizé service and healing prayer team, she is a member of the Spiritual Formation Commission, she is a Diocesan Convention delegate, and she continues to work with the incredible youth at Trinity.
Alicia lives in Portland’s Montavilla neighborhood with her partner, Scott. She is a dedicated volunteer with the Trauma Intervention Program, providing emotional first aid to people after traumatic events. In her free time, she enjoys watching the seasons change on her daily walks around the neighborhood, doing jigsaw puzzles, and cooking delicious, healthy meals in 60 minutes or less.
