Beyond Acting

Beyond her acting pursuits, in 2008, Alice received a Master of Arts in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica. She began working as a volunteer with the “Freedom to Choose” Prison Project, after learning about it from her Professor and Advisor, Dr. David Paul. Having volunteered for 5 years, Alice recently co-founded “Friends of Freedom to Choose” to raise funds for the "Freedom to Choose" Community Projects. 

In 2012, Alice also co-founded “Surf 'n' Serve” with her niece, Elizabeth, and her daughter, Natalie. As the name suggests, "Surf 'n' Serve" is a harmonious blend of surfing and service. It involves hitting the beautifully vast surf zones of the world, while also serving people-in-need who inhabit those zones.
