Alicia was born and raised in Southern Oregon. A native of Eagle Point, she is a graduate of Southern Oregon University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education. She began her career in radio as a sound board operator during her first years of college. As a classical music lover and supporter of local radio, Jefferson Public Radio piqued her interest. In 2010, she joined the JPR staff as the weekend host of First Concert and Siskiyou Music Hall.
In between her weekend classical music shows, Alicia can be found practicing piano. Her favorite composers include Johannes Brahms, Claude Debussy, and Ralph Vaughan Williams.
