Alice has participated in competitive music activities since 1987. She received the bulk of her experience with the Southern California Velvet Knights Drum and Bugle Corps in the late '80s early '90s although she also had valuable experiences with The Musketeers and Anozira-both from Arizona. While she began her journey in the percussion section, she ultimately transitioned into winter guard and color guard was fortunate enough to teach a number of color guards in Arizona, as well as the Colts color guard.
As the founding president of the Winter Guard Assocation of Arizona, she saw a need for judges while the circuit was in its infant stages. She, along with other founding board members, brought in multiple experts to train judges, and her own judging knowledge and experience grew along with the circuit. 2019 will be Alice's third year of judging for WGI.
Alice recently began a new career as an Assistant Professor of Education at California State University Bakersfield. She is passionate about literacy and education and feels that the qualities forwarded by WGI positively contribute to these ideals.
