Years ago, Alicia left New Orleans looking for opportunity. She crisscrossed the nation, landing in a West Coast town light on southern hospitality. Missing were the simple things — lunches in the Central Business District, brass bands on Frenchmen Street and, most of all, family. Once again, she found herself searching for opportunity — this time finding a big one with GE Capital back home. Today, her life is as full as her schedule, and her children get to hug their grandparents. Alicia finally has a work-life balance in the place she loves.
