About Our Chapter

My name is Alicia Kutsch and I recently moved to Richmond, Virginia after finishing my masters in Clinical and Health Psychology in England at the University of Manchester. I have spent my educational career learning about psychology and how the most important factor that individuals need for mental wellbeing is support. After living in multiple places around the world, there was one thing that I realized is in need everywhere: compassion for fellow man. Everyone is fighting their own battles, and I have faith that the key ingredient to a happy, fulfilled life is to realize that this world is bigger than just us and that we must help others in need. After discovering Chicktime, I was inspired to bring this outstanding organization to my local community.  I thought to myself, “What better way to serve others than to bring joy to the most vulnerable population- children of abuse?” I truly believe that being involved in Chicktime is a wonderful opportunity to turn a child’s pain into purpose. I look forward to building an excellent Chicktime community in Richmond with strong, like-minded women who believe that “helping others is the secret sauce to a happy life.”
