Alicia Willis joined CETE on January 2, 2013 as a Program Coordinator but is now an Instructional Development Specialist. She works closely with Traci Lepicki, CETE’s Associate Director: Operations and Strategic Initiatives to provide curriculum recommendations and guidance for The Ohio State University’s Skilled Trades Professional Development Program. Alicia is from the Lima, Ohio area and received her BA in English at The Ohio State University in 2000.
Alicia’s career in education began at McGraw-Hill Education where she developed textbooks and online programs for career-technical education courses. While working at McGraw-Hill, Alicia received her MA in Education with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Phoenix.
When Alicia is not busy working, she enjoys reading (with her cat), swimming, kayaking, and archery. She also fortifies her problem-solving skills by playing strategy games with her husband, Troy, and his friends. Since her parents live in Florida, she travels there a few times a year to enjoy the warmth and sunshine.
