Director of AmeriCorps

Alicia comes to Nevada Volunteers from Seattle where she spent the last 12 years working in the non-profit and university setting with the YMCA of Greater Seattle and the University of Washington Botanic Gardens. During that time Alicia managed youth leadership, service, and environmental education programs in addition to a few years as the Grants and Contracts Manager for a youth violence prevention program called Alive & Free.

Alicia served two terms as an AmeriCorps Member with the Washington Service Corps and has since served as a site supervisor for many AmeriCorps Members over the years. With a BA in Biology and Environmental Studies from Claremont McKenna College and a MS in Biology for Teachers from the University of Washington, Alicia has a passion for science and the environment and loves sharing that with others, especially her husband and two children as they explore the outdoors together.

Alicia is thrilled to finally be drying out in the Nevada sun and to be a part of the Nevada Volunteers team! Contact her by e-mail alicia@nevadavolunteers.org
