ELECTRONIC MUSIC PRODUCER & DJ
ALIA has a global following as an Electronic Music Producer, DJ, Vocalist, and Producer of the musical project, Feminine Medicine™.

ALIA is the visionary behind Feminine Medicine™, a series of collaborative albums and stage shows that brings more feminine frequencies to the dance floor. So far she has collaborated with over 30 artists to produce the albums and the live performances and stage shows. The music has reached listeners around the world and the message behind Feminine Medicine of the importance of bringing greater gender balance to stages and dance floors in the conscious community has contributed to the movement of putting more female DJs on stages.

WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP COACH, AUTHOR & CEO, FEMVOLUTION™
After Alia graduated from Brown University she started a rich and diverse professional career as an advertising executive with Bozell Worldwide and Saatchi & Saatchi where she helped build initiatives for Delta Air Lines, Oil of Olay, and the Milk Mustache campaign. She followed that up as a marketing executive for both start-ups and blue chip brands like Visa.
She left that career to pursue her true passions as a musical artist, transformational coach, and writer, but she brought her formative training with top business minds into her path as a self-created entrepreneur and strategist and coach for other leaders.
For the last 10+ years Alia has built her company Femvolution™ as an online platform to offer coursework and education to help thousands of women free their self-expression and their leadership empowering through her coaching, writing, virtual programs, women’s circles, and 1-on-1 mentoring programs that assist women to overcome their fears, access their true genius, and turn their wisdom into ground-breaking contributions to the world. She
Alia is a published contributor to the book, ReInhabiting the Village (now the basis for a university class curriculum), offering her take on how we can create a global culture that empowers women’s voices. She is also a co-author of the ground-breaking book featuring the voices of 22 women leaders, The New Feminine Evolutionary.
Over 18 years ago, when a healing crisis helped Alia discover that she was off-track in her corporate life and career, she dove into the realm of personal transformation and became professionally trained in personal growth models like NLP, healing modalities like breathwork and somatic experiencing, psychic and intuitive practices, and women’s embodiment and empowerment practices.
On her transformational path Alia became one of the first leaders in the world to be trained in Circling, a modality now used around the world in many organizations, and she has served as a course leader for the Arete Experience and Authentic World for many years.
She also approached the realms of coaching, entrepreneurship and online business with deep focus studying with some of the most respected business coaches and teachers in the industry including Marie Forleo, David Neagle, Bryan Franklin, Elizabeth Purvis, Lee Harris, and Christina Morassi. She has employed internet marketing approaches to build multiple online brands for her music and her women’s work.
Simultaneously Alia has immersed in more esoteric spiritual training with multiple mystery schools, especially as a priestess initiate with the 13 Moons mystery school, and working closely with native spiritual traditions and plant medicine allies. Through deepening into her feminine practices, she has found her clarity of purpose in her role serving the re-awakening of the Divine Feminine on the planet.
Her personal journey of awakening helped her to reclaim the musical talents she had cultivated as a young person and unlock her path as a world-renowned touring artist while becoming ever more passionate about supporting other women to break their chains.
When the opportunities came flooding in to share her musical gifts over recent years, Alia realized she had tapped into a well of wisdom about how to create a life in which we are living in alignment with our purpose.
She combines this experience with her wealth of business and branding experience and mentors women who are leaders of leaders to connect to their inner wisdom, harness their feminine power, and employ savvy business and branding strategy to amplify their message, mission, and movement.
She currently performs on stages around the world, she speaks and writes on topics related to women’s empowerment, and she works with a select group of women through her private mentoring program, Feminine Luminary.
