Alicia is a true born and bred native (Broward) Floridian. She was born at Plantation General Hospital, although her brother was born at Holy Cross (conveniently across the street from Gruber and Associates’ offices).

She graduated early from South Plantation High (before turning 17) and proceeded to enter the workforce in the restaurant business. Alicia started at Broward College as a Sociology Major and has subsequently declared Media Studies to be her intended degree, even though many members of the Gruber and Associates team hope that they can convince her to choose accounting.

After a short time in food service, Alicia became an Administrative Assistant for an Air Charter company, where she remained for several years.

Alicia started as our receptionist, and quickly earned a promotion to Administrative Assistant, where she plays a vital role in the process of getting a tax return from our preparer to the client to the tax authority. Interestingly, nine of the eighteen members of our team have started their career at the front desk, 10 if you count Rich.

Alicia enjoys fine dining, reading and travel. Her next target vacation spots are Denver and New Orleans.

Fun Fact: Alicia’s first job was as a cashier, and one morning her employer came in with a kitten that he had just been given. She walked outside to find someone giving away kittens, and adopted Kitty on the spot.
