Alicia is a naturalist at Jesse H. Jones Park and Nature Center, which, from her home, is a short bike ride “over the river and through the woods.” She was a public high school science teacher and coach for 15 years, and she volunteered on the board of the Texas Association for Environmental Education. Alicia is a Texas Master Naturalist (Heartwood Class of 2022) and a Texas Certified Environmental Educator. Once upon a time, she led field trips for The Nature Conservancy of Texas, and her favorite location is the top of Dolan Falls on the Devils River. She earned a B.S. in Biology and Speech Communication from Trinity University, where she also ran Cross Country and Track and Field. In her free time, Alicia gardens for blueberries and butterflies and she is a regular fan at Astros baseball games.
