About Alicia – ORIGINAL

A Note from Alicia

I spent most of my professional life working in HR leadership roles for Fortune 500 companies. One particular experience stands out. I had my dream job. On the surface it had all the appearances of success — a six figure salary, exposure and responsibilities that contributed to the success of large teams. But personally, all of that came at a high cost. The responsibility translated into 13-hour work days. I felt the life sucking out of me. Less than a year into the role, and in the midst of a lot of uncertainty, I quit.

I took a stand to move forward in creating the career and life I wanted on my own terms no matter what.

Less than three months after quitting the role, I relocated to the city of my choice, got a new job that I truly loved. I finally had the quality of life that I had always envisioned. I am sharing my story with you because that leap of faith changed my career trajectory and life. I was able to harness my emotional intelligence by eliminating negative self- talk, limiting beliefs, and focused on creating the career and life that I wanted.

I am committed to helping my clients do the same…move forward no matter what to have a career and life that they truly love.

Whether you’re feeling stuck in your career or looking to make a big change in your life or leadership journey, I’m here to help you reach your highest potential and achieve your goals.
