Experience and Education

In 2012, Alicia pursued a yoga teaching certification to manage her aches and pains. After completing her yoga teacher training, she enrolled in a three-year Yoga Therapy certification program. She built a strong relationship with her students who were also experiencing chronic pain and tailored her movement sequences to alleviate their pain. This experience motivated Alicia to learn how to better help her students, prompting her journey to become a physical therapist. 

Alicia graduated from Upstate Medical University in 2019 with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy. Throughout school, she continued to teach yoga, build relationships with chronic pain patients, and work in outpatient physical therapy. She has since focused on expanding her skills with both hands-on manual therapy work and pelvic floor health.

In her spare time, Alicia continues to teach yoga with a focus on reducing pain and improving mobility. She also loves to hike in the Catskills and the Adirondacks.
