Alicia Pierce joined the Texas Public Policy Foundation as Communications Director in April 2017.

She has an extensive background in statewide policy communications having served four Texas Secretaries of State and managed multiple statewide voter education campaigns. Her work is rooted in a strong legislative foundation having worked as the press secretary for Senators Todd Staples and Robert Nichols. Before moving to Austin because she was homesick for Texas, Alicia worked in D.C. both on Capitol Hill and at a White House internship.

A graduate of Abilene Christian University, Alicia was a 2016 recipient of the prestigious Gutenberg Award recognizing professional achievement in the field of mass communications.

Alicia met her husband, Brian Pierce, at University Avenue Church of Christ where they are still active members.
