As a Personal Trainer and Health Coach, helping people meet their fitness and nutrition goals is Alicia's passion. 

 A retired military officer of 23 years, her overall military experience taught her how to become a leader, manager, educator, and innovator.  Alicia wanted to encourage people who could not encourage themselves to stay fit and strong.

"I believe being active and eating healthy produces a longer life span. It also reduces cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and hypertension."
