Education: Alice holds a bachelor's degree in musical theatre and a master's degree in education from Wagner College. Her educational thesis for her master's focused on the gifted and talented student in education and the arts.

When asked about a favorite recipe, Alice will offer one up for focaccia which she has even used in an emergency when there was no bread to make lunches for school for the next day. Her go-to dish for a potluck is her recipe for pasta salad with tomatoes, garlic oil, basil, and Danish Fontina cheese. Favorite meals out have always been at a local restaurant called Vida which she describes as a charming little spot where the food was made with love and the chef created an atmosphere where everyone was welcome to enjoy her recipes and the stories behind them. Alice's kitchen tool she can't live without is her unassuming and always reliable sheet pan.
