A great day begins with a quick walk with the dog and making a gourmet breakfast. All of my passions in life make me more agile in my day-to-day client services. As the leader of a growing company, it’s important to maintain a healthy balance and approach to our work and to my life.
I’ve channeled my degrees & certificates into 20+ years of clinical & legal expertise.
I’m dedicated to charitable causes that impact my community, and protect animals.
I love to travel, and I consider myself a “foodie.” The wine & cuisine of a foreign country feeds my soul.
Animals are my one true love. I’m not a ‘cat person’ or a ‘dog person,’ I’m both.
The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who’s going to stop me.
– Ayn Rand
In 1992, Alicia graduated from nursing school in Texas and set about a 15 year career focused in high-risk obstetrics, gynecology, and surgery. In 1997, through collaboration with the University of New Mexico Hospital and a national obstetrical monitoring company, she became the youngest Director of Clinical Services on the corporate team, overseeing the management of at-risk maternal home care patients throughout NM, southern Colorado and El Paso.
In 2002, Alicia became an active member of the local and national Chapters of the American Organization of Legal Nurse Consultants (AALNC). She has always challenged herself in her career to learn more, wear more hats, and be a leader in her field – legal nurse consulting seemed like the next right step. Over the next few years, Alicia continued to work full-time in clinical nursing practice while building ALN Consulting as a professional business. In 2006, after moving to Tennessee, she had the opportunity to join the defense team of a Nashville law firm as a nurse paralegal. Within the first year, and with the help of two of Tennessee’s best defense counsel, Alicia took the opportunity to transition ALN Consulting into a full-time enterprise.
Alicia maintains her licensure as an RN and has been a Legal Nurse Consultant Certified (ABSNC) since 2009. Her varied experiences in clinical nursing and nursing management inform her work as ALN’s CEO every day. A result of her constant determination to provide excellent service, Alicia’s work was published in The Journal of Legal Nurse Consulting in 2016. Throughout the year, she speaks at industry events and educational conferences about timely, medical-legal topics.
If you get an out-of-office reply from me, hopefully it’s because I’m traveling or scuba diving.
Come with me on my journey, and follow me as I share all the parts of my life. These are the adventures that create a healthy and balanced life. I love my work with all my heart, and these adventures feed that love and give me balance and focus.
