Raised in Baltimore, MD, Alycia moved to South Florida in 2005. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of South Florida in Tampa and earned her master’s degree in Shakespeare Studies from The University of Birmingham’s Shakespeare Institute. Her experience offers a unique approach to writing and editing as her background is in Renaissance Literature. As Shakespeare’s works are Alycia’s greatest passion, a quote that resonates with her is “let me be that I am and seek not to alter me”. This quote means, in it’s simplest form, “don’t try and change me”.
After 6 years in the AEC industry, Alycia’s advice to up-and-coming architects is be passionate. If you are passionate about what you do, about architecture, your journey won’t be as rocky. Architecture is a path that will have highs and lows, it will not be easy, but if you are passionate, it will be worth it.
