About Alicia


A little about me…

For my full-time profession, I have been working with children as a Speech-Language Pathologist for 12 years. I love to learn new things, flip about on trampolines, and I’m constantly creating new things in the kitchen. My friends frequently come to me for advice about work, family, relationships, you name it! It’s been quite the natural progression from learning/discussing/practicing The Rules with friends to sharing them with you! My friends and I are true, passionate believers in The Rules. They work. Plain and simple. They just make your life easier!

Are you married?

I am not currently married, no. I am divorced, and “unengaged.” I am currently in the dating world, right there with you.  When I got divorced back in 2005, I realized that I had never really been part of the dating scene as I had married my high school boyfriend. I needed some guidelines! That’s when I found The Rules. The Rules have made a huge difference in my life, and not just my dating life. The Rules have helped me establish boundaries within all of my relationships, both personal and professional.

How can you provide me with advice about finding Mr. Right if you haven’t found your own yet?

I thought a lot about this before I decided to become certified. What kind of credibility would I bring? Then I thought about how, if I were to seek advice about dating, I would go about choosing my adviser. Would I rather get advice from a woman that’s been married for 5, 10+ years? Maybe some… But I would rather get advice from someone still in practice. I love my married girlfriends, and I would NEVER turn down advice from Ellen or Sherrie, the original Rules Girls. Those ladies (literally) wrote the book! But I would like the MOST current information: Which of the many dating websites is best for me? What do I SAY when he says “abc” or asks “xyz?” Where do you go to meet men? What is really going on in today’s dating world? I would prefer that someone be able to relate to my current feelings and concerns of being single, rather than fondly recalling their single life, from years ago.

So let me help you learn, relearn, or practice The Rules. The quest for Mr. Right doesn’t have to be full of mystery and heartache. The Rules open your eyes and shed light on why men do what they do (or don’t do). Your time is precious; they won’t be able to waste it anymore when you’re a Rules Girl!
