Alicia was born and raised in Charlotte and has three kids. Before coming to CCSC, she was a manager at a clinic, doing everything from payroll to cleaning. But when COVID happened, she decided she needed to leave for her own health and safety. Alicia has always known how to do many things, but she is happiest when she is cooking. She loves being able to make other people happy through her food. Her kids love requesting a special family creation called the cheeseburger pie. Alicia believes that presentation and taste are equal partners when cooking, so she wants to make sure that everything looks as good as it tastes. She hopes to open her own business one day called “Mouthful by the Bite,” specializing in mini foods and desserts. Alicia was driving down Monroe Road one day when she saw the CCSC sign. With her interest piqued, she drove home and looked up the School. She was delighted to learn more and immediately called to apply. When she first started, she thought she wanted to learn more about baking, but now that she’s here, she’s excited to learn about making food from scratch and pairing it with the perfect sauces and gravy. Welcome to Class 67, Alicia!
