As a member of the Phoenix Quartet, she performed and taught as an artist-in-residence at the University of Michigan.
Ms. Doudna was previously the director of the Peninsula Strings Program in Blue Hill, Maine and also served as a Fellow and teaching assistant to Merry Peckham at the Perlman Music Program in New York.

Alicia is currently living and working in Ann Arbor, Michigan where she performs and teaches solo and chamber music. She continues to be inspired by her love of music and the people who enrich her life.
Alicia suffered from a traumatic brain injury following a car accident in 2011. She feels that, ultimately, her musical experience was the key to her recovery along with the support of many amazing relatives and friends. “I’ve said this a million times: I really think music’s wiring in my brain helped save my life. I think music wires the brain differently. It’s an excellent way of sharing emotions. Sadness, happiness, and reality.”
Rev. Dr. Bob O’Keef will begin a new Sermon Series entitled: QUESTIONS GOD ASKS. The questions is, “Where Are You?” Come and find out why God would ask this question! Future sermons will explore questions like “Where is Your Brother?”, “What Do You Have In Your Hand?”, “Who Will Go for Us?”, “Do You Want to Be Well?”, “Who Do You Say that I Am?”, “What Is Your Name” , “What Do You Want Me to do for You?” and “Why Are You So Afraid?”
