Education: B.A. from UC Santa Cruz
Working: Naturalist at Exploring New Horizons Outdoor Schools
Alicia was born and raised in Goleta, California, and migrated north to attend college at UC Santa Cruz, where she earned her B.A. in Environmental Studies. Some of her favorite experiences during college were living and studying in Spain, taking sailing and gardening classes, and embarking on a ten-week adventure called Natural History Field Quarter. Field Quarter and an Environmental Interpretation class ignited her passion for learning, teaching, and exploring outside. Alicia spent the past four summers working as a counselor and then assistant director at Life Lab, a garden-based summer camp where kids hike, climb trees, harvest vegetables, and cook food from the farm. She was a Naturalist Intern at Sierra Outdoor School before working the past two years as a Naturalist at Exploring New Horizons. She could not be more excited to travel, work, and adventure with teenagers at RLT this summer. Her favorite foods include dark chocolate, sweet potatoes, and sourdough bread, while her favorite activities are cooking, backpacking, soaking up sunshine, and seeing people get excited about nature.
