Alicia’s career at Park Avenue has been marked by brilliant success.

Her dedication, strategic thinking, and unwavering commitment to her role have been key drivers in her impressive achievements.


Originally from Kent, Alicia studied Criminology at the University of Brighton. After spending three years in Brighton, she made a seamless transition to London life, where she’s always out and about enjoying a cocktail or a glass of wine. She loves going on European city breaks, immersing herself in different cultures and experiences. Reading is one of her favourite pastimes, and she often spends her weekends dog walking with her beloved cockapoo, Bella, who has become something of a LinkedIn star.

Alicia also cherishes spending time with her university friends, running, and swimming. She’s gearing up for her first half marathon in July and participating in the Public Sector Walking Challenge in September!
