Ali Lincoln brings experience in and passion for education to TVP Communications. She especially loves student success stories and the unique opportunities that colleges offer, and has a knack for matching great stories to the right reporter.
Ali regularly works with faculty experts at a wide range of colleges and universities, and her pitching efforts—including her meticulous research on journalist’s interests and preferences—have resulted in national placements for their scholarship, research and expertise. When she’s not pitching the media, Ali provides the TVP Communications team with general client support. She happily acts as a jack-of-all-trades behind the scenes for any client needs, from drafting op-eds to editing press releases to brainstorming pitching angles.
Ali has a passion for writing, and in addition to contributing regular pieces on access and financial aid issues to the TVP Communications blog, she’s also the voice behind the agency’s Week in Review posts. Ali recently had an opinion piece on institutions using their FAFSA positions unfairly against students published by Inside Higher Ed.
Prior to joining TVP Communications, Ali worked at Bottom Line, a college access and success organization that helps first-generation, low-income students enter college and complete their degrees. In addition to working directly with both high school and college students, she managed curriculum and program projects, as well as collaborated with college administrators and community partners to improve student services. Ali also served as a corps member for Teach for America, working as a high school English teacher at Contemporary Learning Academy in Denver, Colorado. Previously, she interned in the Public Affairs office at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Ali earned bachelor’s degree in English with a concentration in creative writing from the College of the Holy Cross. Though she’s been a lifelong Massachusetts resident, she now lives in Williamsburg, Virginia with her husband and daughter.
