I’m Alicia Robinson, Chief Career Catalyst at EdPlus Consulting, and CONNECTION is totally my thing! I just can’t help myself. I feel alive and aligned with my purpose when I’m helping folks connect with the passions that matter to them.

Serendipity is my ABSOLUTE favorite word. That magical coming together of two things that beautifully complement each other sets my SOUL ON FIRE. I love an opportunity to see how a nudge of effort can unite people, concepts, or ideas.

Connection + Serendipity is why EdPlus Consulting exists.

In 2013, I founded EdPlus Consulting because I had a deep desire to improve educational equity for ALL marginalized communities. I have 15+ years' experience working in early childhood through 12th grade urban education as an instructor, non-profit manager, talent/human assets executive, and a career coach.

Once upon a time I…

  • Was the Chief Talent Officer at DC Prep, a charter management organization for students in preschool-8th grade ranked for multiple consecutive years as the highest performing CMO in Washington, DC. Yep, pretty awesome, huh? 😉
  • Was a teacher in DC public schools - first in DCPS as part of the inaugural class of DC Teaching Fellows, and then as a member of the founding faculty of DC Prep. I’ve been where you are!
  • Led education and recruitment initiatives at the Washington Scholarship Fund and New Leaders for New Schools. I hustle to make magic happen!
  • Made tons of connections as an event planner and publicist. I can manage like a boss!

I walked an honest road toward education talent management, and in the process built the largest network of connections in the Washington, DC marketplace!

I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished because, you see, my passion-driven work connects educators invested in social justice with the organizations that help fan the flames of their spark. I also work hard to help passionate education organizations recruit and retain the talent they love. With every passing year, I’ve dug deep to bring my clients more support, including professional development for those leading talent management initiatives within high-impact organizations, and coaching for talent professionals and career searchers.

The work I do is the work I was made for, and I want to connect you with the work you were made for!

Find the work you love. Recruit the talent you want.
