Alicia DeMatteo, Manager of Editorial Services


In her role as manager of editorial services, Alicia DeMatteo revels in project organization and refinement of the written word. Alicia applies her writing talents to everything from pitches to newsletters to Tweets. Her career as a writer dates back to the age of seven when she penned two classic tales about her brother, The Boy Who Married the Telephone and The Boy with the Cranberry Freckles (both currently out of print).

Alicia joined Lilja Communications in 2005 as a PR assistant. Prior to that, she held internship positions at Game Informer Magazine and the Office of Communications at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications from Marymount University.

In her spare time, Alicia enjoys spending afternoons in the kitchen, curating her closet and training her cat to play catch.
