Hey, I’m Alicia — the brains and creative juice behind LaVie Creative. I’m a wellness advocate, photographer, designer, and brand strategist. I’m also a textbook introvert, a perfectionist, and a productivity nerd.
In August 2017 I left my busy startup job in Boston to move to Berlin with my husband. 6 months after uprooting our entire life, I was diagnosed with one and a half-ish autoimmune diseases: Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and (unconfirmed) Celiac disease. Navigating the medical world with an autoimmune disease is hard; doing so in a foreign country where I barely speak the language was even harder. I quickly learned to take control of my health and implement holistic healing practices — I traded my busy life, takeout, and wine nights for meditation, clean eating, and bone broth.
I’m back in Boston now, where I host wellness/essential oils workshops and partner with brands to develop their visual identity and communications strategies. LaVie Creative is an outlet for me to share the ups and downs of my wellness journey as I travel, work, and navigate life with an autoimmune disease. I hope to inspire others to let go of the hustle, and start living well.
