“Balancing work and play is a full-time job.”

We like to say Alicia knows everyone. You can’t walk down the street without seeing someone she calls a friend. We call her “The Includer,” because she goes out of her way to make people feel welcomed. Alicia also knows numbers. It’s a talent she discovered when she and her husband started their own business in 1999. In addition to her payroll and accounting duties, she volunteers at church and her kids’ school. Her three kids know her as supermom for her ability to shuttle between soccer, basketball and baseball practices. Eternally grateful for the people in her life, Alicia doesn’t take things for granted.
