Career guidance, acting technique, audition prep... After a decade in Hollywood, I know a thing or two about the CRAFT and BUSINESS of acting! I've booked over a DOZEN speaking roles on TV and Film including How to Get Away with Murder, The Young & the Restless, and Jane the Virgin, I appear on national commercials yearly, and I've played voices in award-winning audiobooks. I am also a former NBA dancer & collegiate cheerleader!

A decade ago, I wish I had had someone to help me fill in the missing pieces.

What more can I do? What should I do differently?

DB, is truly understanding of the individual and knowledgeable of the media acting world. She works with me like my acting partner and mostly jumps straight into scene work, so I really appreciate her friendly and honest teaching-style. She is great for novices, students trying to get back into acting again, and the experienced that want to keep their acting talent up to peak condition. Donnabella is highly recommended!

We were a perfect match. I felt comfortable and she got the best out of me. Very relaxed and honest.
Tivia Lynnell
I for sure found Coach Alicia to be a knowledgeable actor, skilled as a teacher and more precisely as a voice-over coach. What takes Coach Alicia to another level is her personality, she’s engaging and warm even when telling you nope, that wasn’t it, your delivery wasn’t authentic or true to the character or the script. I became comfortable with her fairly quickly. She made our voice-over sessions feel like we were physically in the same space and not having class online. I so loved our improv time during our sessions and it’s so vital in voiceover work. I had a great time coach, thanks for helping me grow even further and for helping me discover where my weakness are so I can improve upon them and eventually eliminate them altogether.
Zahraa
Alicia is a wonderful person beside she is very professional in her work. She puts all of her heart in her work. I find her the best in acting coaching, voice acting, accent coach and great therapist. She helped me with managing my time. She is a very supportive person and basically mangling my mind. And I am looking forward to work with her in a long period.

I will prep you for auditions, teach you different camera techniques (close us vs 3/4 shot, vs master shot), and so much more.
