Raised as a third-culture kid in the Pacific Northwest, Japan, and Europe, Alicia’s roots have been global for as long as she can remember. Her nomadic life continues to be driven by her fascination for the natural world and curiosity of off-the-beaten-path locales. She has a particular interest in wildlife conservation and gender-driven topics. From hiking through remote Himalayan mountain villages and exploring meditation and yogic traditions, to food and wine culture, Alicia’s curiosity brings her to places far and wide. These days, she works as a freelance political analyst, writer, and social entrepreneur and primarily splits her time between Seattle, East and Southern Africa, and India.
