Before moving to Melbourne, Alicia grew up on a farm in country WA (in a town of 400 people), so she understands the importance of community and having access to high quality health care, as well as vanilla slices!
In her spare time, Alicia is crocheting rugs for the Melbourne winter, walking in the parks of Melbourne and trying new coffee hotspots!
