Biography

Alicia is a native North Carolinian born and raised in Chatham County and relocated to Wake County at the age of 15 years old.   This was a difficult adjustment for me, but became favorable when I met my high school sweetheart Kelvin Harris and married in 1992. We have two beautiful daughters Kadra and Zion.‚Äč I have 17 years accounting experience with NC State University and previously had the opportunity to work in Engineering, CALS, and Facilities Budget Office.  I earned an Associate of Science Degree in Business Management in 1991.  I'm rooted and grounded in the Christian faith and enjoy mission work and was fortunate enough to do my first mission trip to Honduras in 2009! I'm a active member of my local Church and also an Event Coordinator of a Women's Ministry called The Daughters of Zion United International. I started the NCSU staff prayer group in 2006 and we meet the 4th Thursday of each month and pray for our great University, faculty, staff, students and one another. I'm a firm believer that "prayer changes things"!
