Alicia dove into the swimming world at an early age, and continues to participate and give back to the sport that she grew up loving so much.  She swam on both Club and Summer teams growing up, and continued her swimming career at Case Western Reserve University where she chose Nutrition as  major.  The combination of her two passions in life, focused her studies on Sports Nutrition.  Her college swimming career culminated in a National Division III National Championship in the 500y Freestyle, but that's not where the fulfillment ended.  As a graduate student at Case, she continued her involvement with the Varsity team by serving as a graduate assistant coach and sports dietitian.  A coaching internship brought Alicia out to Colorado Springs in 2005 and since then she has continues to be involved in the swimming world, both as an PPA Masters athlete and coach.  She has coached at the Collegiate, Masters, Senior, and Age-group levels over the past 5 years.  She truly values the time that she can spend developing young swimmers motivation and identity as athletes, as well as helping older athletes strive to meet their true potential.
