Chris Dovi

Executive director
I'm CodeVA's executive director and policy advocate. I've written all of Virginia's relevant computer science education legislation. I co-founded the organization in 2013 with my wife, Rebecca Dovi, and our student programming director, Maggie Smith. CodeVA was Code.org's first affiliate partner beginning in 2013. Since then, I've learned a lot about accidentally founding a statewide nonprofit organization that provides free training services for thousands of public school teachers every year, and direct student programs for thousands more - all on a shoestring budget.
