Meet Ali
Ali Dodson is the Assistant Director of the Washington Scholars Program. She has a B.S in Conservation Biology from George Mason University, and an M.S. in Sustainable Development and Conservation Biology and M.P.P in Environmental Policy from University of Maryland. Her master’s research focused on student perception of environmental issues, which she then used to create and teach a summer Living Learning Community for University of Maryland’s Upward Bound Program. She also worked with Maryland’s Office of Sustainability to help create the UMD/K-12 Partnership for Green Schools, a program designed to help area schools become Green School certified. Before going to Maryland, Ali worked with the Consortium for Ocean Leadership’s National Ocean Sciences Bowl, a national competition for high school students in the marine sciences.  She also worked in the Ape House at the National Zoo, and was fortunate enough to be a part of the first Smithsonian-Mason Semester program at George Mason, where she experienced the fascinating world of Smithsonian scientists. She has been a WYSE Faculty Advisor for three years and comes to WSP from EPA, where she was an ORISE fellow researching coastal wetlands. In her free time, Ali attempts to grow her own vegetables, hangs out in her big back yard with her dogs, and does volunteer work in her community as a part of the Arlington Regional Master Naturalists.
