Alice loved teaching. It all began when she completed her Armenian Educational Studies and was ordained an Armenian Sunday School teacher. This rewarding experience influenced her career path, and instilled in her the passion for teaching.  She graduated with Bachelor and Master Degrees, and Sixth Year Certificates in Education. She was a dedicated, creative, and devoted teacher who taught students at the primary and middle school levels, and she also taught French.

Alice loved traveling around the World, and immersed herself in various cultures while savoring all the features of each country. These travel experiences lead to a second career as a travel agent. She enthusiastically planned trips for her clients and taught them how to be safe and embrace the arts, architecture, and food to help them enhance their cultural horizons.

Alice always loved spending time with family and friends. She enjoyed skiing, shopping, cooking, going on cruises, and traveling with them. She loved reading a book at the beach and swimming in the pool.
