Bio
Paula Dowd is a single mother of two teenage boys, ages 13 and 15. She has been at Goodwin College for five years and the Program Director of Health Science for three years. While she enjoys her position as the Program Director, the most rewarding part of her job is interacting with the students on a daily basis. When she is not at work or with her boys, she enjoys gardening and weight training. One day she hopes to hike across Australia and Madagascar but that probably won’t happen anytime soon.
