Before jumping into entrepreneurship, Alicia was enrolled in the PhD program at the University of Michigan pursuing a career in Environmental Science and Policy. She worked with some notable organizations including The White House, The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), and The City of New Orleans in the Mayor’s Office.
In the year 2000, she was introduced to how to build a business via the Internet and left her PhD behind.
