Alicia Aravena is the Marketing Manager at Barghausen.

Alicia’s drive to become a marketing professional started with her fascination with the psychology behind successful branding, imagery, and storytelling. This interest led her to study communications at the University of Washington, where she became further invested in social media as a marketing communication platform. Alicia joined Barghausen in 2019 and enjoys the creativity of content production, seeing ideas come to life through design, and the strategy of putting together a competitive proposal.
