Alycia grew up in a tiny prairie town in southwestern Minnesota, where she fell in love with nature and learned the importance of community engagement and public service. Alycia has made a career out of her greatest passion: empowering and equipping people of faith to be strong advocates for environmental stewardship and policy. She was instrumental in getting LRC off the ground and facilitated the first several Train-the-Trainer workshops throughout the country. Much of her time now is spent trying to usher her nature-loving toddler daughter into a better world. She also works to make the future brighter through her role with Ohio Interfaith Power & Light as an outreach coordinator and as a board member for the Center for Spirituality in Nature.
