Throughout Alicia’s 20+ year career, her passion to drive growth through employee engagement has established her as a positive force for change in a diverse set of industries and functions.

Alicia enrolled at Thunderbird in order to become a more effective bridge-builder and leader. And as a true Thunderbird, she has traveled to Europe, the U.K., Asia, Russia and Mexico for business as well as for educational pursuits and humanitarian efforts. Very soon after graduation, Alicia became active in TIAA as the volunteer webinar manager and then moved to be interim Operations Manager. We welcome her to the TIAA team and we know you will appreciate and value her passion to support fellow Thunderbird alumni.
