Alicia has a private practice in San Francisco and provides nutrition counseling one-on-one to help create an actionable plan to meet their health goals including weight loss, diabetes, and food sensitivities and intolerances to name a few. She helps individuals develop systems to implement behavior change to become the next best versions of themselves. Alicia also offers virtual meal planning group workshops year-round and this program is offered to individuals and to workplace wellness programs nationally. In February 2019, Alicia founded Quick & Delish by Alicia Connor, a video cooking series on YouTube, where she presents easy recipes with minimal steps for flavorful, balanced meals.
