Alicia completed her undergraduate education at the University of Delaware and received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Columbia University. She has been with Finish Line PT since 2015. She is certified by the Postural Restoration Institute, which seeks to understand the primary contributors of postural kinetic and kinematic movement dysfunction. She is recognized as a Fellow of Applied Functional Science (FAFS) through the internationally acclaimed Gray Institute.
Alicia has undergone certifications in Women’s Health, expanding her knowledge and experience to include pelvic floor health as well as prenatal and postpartum care.
The youngest of four with three older brothers, Alicia was a ballet dancer throughout high school. Her interest in becoming a physical therapist stemmed from her own injuries while dancing. “I really liked the idea of treating people without medication or surgery, and the opportunity to build relationships with people appealed to me.” In college, she taught yoga and was a part of a modern dance company at Delaware.
Since joining the clinic Alicia crossed the finish line of three half-marathons, and has been featured in multiple fitness magazines such as Dance Magazine and the Daily Burn.
