Alicia is an experienced educator, with a strong passion for Ed Tech, STEM and inspiring young girls to explore the possibilities of working with technology. She focuses her time at TechGirlz working on curriculum development and instructional design of the TechShopz in a BoxTM curriculum, coordinates National workshops with the dedicated volunteers and organizations interested in partnering to spread the mission, and manages the website blog.
Alicia has always enjoyed self learning new technologies and instilling them into her lessons. In October 2015, a friend told her about a meetup in Philly hosted by a nonprofit, TechGirlz, and thought it would be of great interest to her. Alicia attended and immediately felt a strong connection towards the mission and soon after began to use her skills to aide in updating current workshops, attending new TechShopz and writing the corresponding curriculum, so they could be taught by future instructors. The rest is history and she’s been devoted to helping to support the TechGirlz mission ever since.
Alicia has a BA from Holy Family University, with a dual certification in Elementary/Special Education. When she’s not attending a TechShop or event for the organization, Alicia can be found running races in the NJ and PA area with her husband or walking her dog, Dottie, by the river.
