Alecia Humphreys


For as long as she can remember, Alecia has been mesmerized by magazines. Although she started as chemistry major at the country’s top journalism school, once there she made the simple switch to pursue her passion — and never looked back.

After several years in newspaper and magazine journalism, Alecia is now a stay-at-home mom by day and freelance writer by nap time. When she’s not making yet another snack for her tenacious toddlers, she can be found curled up with her Kindle, taking a Peloton spin class or working in the garden.
