Hey, I’m Alicia — the brains and creative juice behind LaVie Creative. I’m a photographer, designer, and brand strategist. I’m also textbook introvert, a perfectionist, and a productivity nerd. In August 2017 I left my amazing startup job in Boston to move to Berlin with my husband where I’ve restarted my freelance career.
6 months after uprooting our entire life, I was diagnosed with two autoimmune diseases: Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Celiac disease. Taking control of one’s health with an autoimmune disease is hard; doing so in a foreign country where I barely speak the language is so much fun (JK…it’s even harder). While I’m fortunate to have a great doctor here who started me on the AIP (autoimmune protocol) right away, figuring out where to source all the food I need takes a lot of work and research (spoiler alert: reading nutritional labels in another language doubles grocery shopping time). At first I missed Whole Foods more than ever, but I’m quickly learning to buy grass fed meats from the neighborhood butcher, and frequenting organic farmer’s markets twice a week.
LaVie Creative is an outlet for me to share the ups and downs of my wellness journey as I travel, work, and navigate living well on AIP as an expat.
