Meet the Team

Alli Webster, Chair

Alli fell in love with the ocean as a child, spending summers sailing with her family in Maine. She grew up hours from the ocean in the suburbs of Philadelphia, graduated college in upstate New York, then took off running to Santa Cruz in 2016 and never looked back. Alli ran our Blue Water Task Force for over two years. She has a passion for protecting the ocean, and plans to return to school for Environmental Policy to pursue a career in the field. This position is a dream job for her, and she is incredibly grateful for the opportunity to grow our chapter as Chair.
