Alicia Ranney


Hi! My name is Alicia. I am an over 20-yr old (we won't say how much over...) wife and mother, the laziest of all housekeepers, squeamish at the sight of puke (but not at the sight of blood), and an enjoyer of chocolate milk and sharp cheddar cheese (sometimes as part of the same meal). I work hard at a place that I am proud of, and I'm grateful to count my bosses and coworkers as some of my biggest supporters. Our household consists of my wonderful husband (he does all the shopping, cooks delectable food and remembers all the things that I forget, and his laugh is one of my favorite things in the world), two children (the epicenter of my universe, even when they cooperate with one another to drive me out of my tiny mind), two cats who think they're people, and a spoiled goldfish named Sunset Hearts.
