Alice Tornquist, #25416
Alice came to know and appreciate Camp Dudley and Kiniya through her children, #22643 Matthew and #22316 Caroline Tornquist, who are the first in their family to attend camp. Collectively they have spent 14 years at camp, including serving on the leadership teams. It’s been truly amazing to see what a significant role camp has played in their lives and in their development as young adults.
Professionally, Alice works in Washington, DC, for Qualcomm Incorporated, the San Diego-based wireless technology innovator, where her focus is on spectrum and technology policy advocacy. In addition, she is the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the CTIA Wireless Foundation, which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to developing and supporting initiatives that use wireless technology to enhance American communities in the areas of health and safety. Alice also serves on the board of directors of the Intelligent Transportation Society of America and the Women’s High-Tech Coalition.
Alice began her career in Washington, DC, at the Office of Management and Budget, and she also worked on Capitol Hill for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure prior to joining Qualcomm in 2001.
As a volunteer, Alice has held several roles at Rock Spring Congregational UCC in Arlington, VA, including those of deacon, Christian Education board member and deputy financial secretary. She also served as a cookie mom for the Girl Scouts for twelve years and currently is a member of the Parents Committee of Swarthmore College.
Alice is honored to join the Camp Dudley Board of Trustees where she hopes to bring her experience and skills as both a professional in business and a volunteer in the nonprofit sector to ensure that these great camps can thrive into the future. She hopes that many more young people will have the same opportunity that her children have had to grow and develop in a nurturing environment that teaches them the value of putting the Other Fellow First.
