Why does Alicia participate in the ASHA Community?
I participate in the ASHA community to learn from my colleagues who are experts in our field. Whenever it feels like I’ve reached a dead-end or lack information, the ASHA community provides inspiration for new approaches, perspectives and techniques that keep my career just as dynamic as my clients. I also love hearing the inspiring stories of client success and the things clinicians are proud of- that's what motivates me when things get hard.
The best part of waking up is?
Well...in this stage of life the first thing that comes to mind is coffee. At least two cups, with cream. I currently have 3 kids four and under...so there isn't really a "best part," but the coffee helps!
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I moved to MN from AZ about 10 years ago and I just bought my first pair of snow pants this year. I'd like to embrace the beautiful winters here by learning how to ice skate and cross country ski properly. If that doesn't go well, I've always wanted to get better at knitting, which also sounds like a nice, warmer alternative.
Name something fun you think others don't know about you.
I've bungee jumped from the highest bridge in Africa- Bloukrans bridge. The whole experience was horrifying and I cried the entire time. My roommates said it was one of the funniest things they've ever watched. And no- I would NOT do it again.
