I’m Alicia, a Registered Children’s Nurse from the UK with a passion for helping nurses live more fulfilled lives. After suffering from countless bouts of burnout myself I almost quit nursing on more than occasion.

I’ve since come full circle. I’ve been able to transform my life in a way in which both my career and personal life can flourish. Now I’m determined to make a difference for other healthcare professionals because nourishing our souls is the only way we can focus on those at the hands of our care.

I have a passion for travel and have nursed in the UK, Australia and New Zealand! But I saw the same problems again and again in every country. Nurses are becoming more and more burnout and through my platform I want to help nurses create a life so we can all achieve balance before burnout.

On the blog is where you can find all my tips about becoming a more fulfilled nurse and my general life musings. I love travel and Christmas is my favourite time of year so expect a lot of both. The blog is where you’ll find any updates or basically anything that I’m doing!

A weekly newsletter bringing a little wave of inspiration into your inbox every Wednesday. It’ll be a little letter from me with a different topic each week along with things I’ve personally been enjoying along with a reminder to check in on yourself and your week so far.

My brand new Podcast will be coming to you very soon. I’m not revealing anything just yet but keep updated with everything here at Alicia Overseas so you don’t miss its launch! (Make sure you’re subscribed or following along on social media as I’ll be revealing it EVERYWHERE) eek!
