Alicia Parente

Director of Human Resources and Administration

Alicia first began her work with Ratio Christi as a volunteer in 2013, eventually accepting a full-time position with Ratio Christi’s national staff, currently as the Director of Human Resources & Administration. Her diverse background includes pioneering retail merchandising with a Fortune 500 company, hiring and managing a large sales team in senior services, positions in national and international accounting, as well as owning a medical and legal transcription company.

She was born and raised in Rhode Island and moved to North Carolina in 2011. Alicia is blessed to be married to her best friend and husband, Joseph. Their family includes seven amazing children and ten grandchildren. Their youngest daughter, Kay, is a recent graduate of Appalachian State University – the home of Ratio Christi’s first campus chapter.



During her childhood, Alicia attended an Episcopal Church. Her family was very active in the congregation, overseeing many of the youth and family activities. Although she grew up in church, the first time she really heard and understood the Gospel was with the wife of her priest. She then accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior in 1978. Alicia and Joseph actively serve the local church body. They are members of Central Church of God in Charlotte.



Alicia serves in a much-needed administrative role. As Ratio Christi sends out more campus ministers, Alicia welcomes each one of them, answers their questions, and works diligently behind the scenes to allow them to maximize their time and efforts on campus.
