Guest Profile

Alicia Ayala

As a childhood trauma survivor, Alicia adopted a growth mindset early in her life, knowing there was a choice to stay where she was or take quantum action to live a different life. She has a degree in Business Management and Management of Information Systems, becoming the first in her family to graduate from College.


She was a respected senior corporate leader in Technology for 20+ years and built a powerful brand of being a driven leader, creative problem solver, and tenacious about female equity. She created a Women’s Technology group called The Witty Crew, where female technologists came together to learn, connect, and grow. She found herself up for her next promotion – Vice President, and much closer to her dream of CIO. She realized this was no longer her dream.


She is on a mission to inspire and empower women to live their most passionate and happy lives and, ultimately, create a healthier world. She is excited to help women define their personal vision, discover the power of their story, and take quantum action to create the life they want.


She has been a repeat guest on the Set2Love podcast sharing personal leadership and mindset strategies. She has spoken at events as large as 90 women and received a standing ovation for her authentic and passionate storytelling. She was recently featured on The Journey’s Remastered podcast sharing her story from childhood abuse survivor to thriver. She loves speaking on topics around grit, resiliency, personal power, and the power your story has on changing the course of your life.
