Alicia holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, a Masters in Social Work, and is registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Services Workers. Alicia believes that the quality of the parent-child relationship plays a pivotal role in the wellbeing of children, youth, families and communities. As such, she is passionate about supporting families in healing the intergenerational challenges they face, believing that the impact of such interventions reaches to children and families of the past, present and future. Alicia has built her experience working with children, youth and families in a variety of settings, including the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO), Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth and the Ottawa Carleton District School Board.

In her role as the Parent Support Service Coordinator at the Parent Resource Centre (PRC), Alicia acts as the first point of contact for clients looking to access services at the PRC. With a keen interest in prevention and early intervention, she looks to support the growth of the PRC by developing evidence-informed programming targeting the needs of PRC clients, community and PRC’s strategic directions.

A rural born girl, Alicia enjoys fostering relationships in her own life by spending time with friends and family outdoors at her family cottage, on Ottawa’s scenic trails or in Gatineau Park where she enjoys hiking, skiing and kayaking.
