Bowers has a background in human services, specializing in public health and aging. Prior to joining the College of Humanities and Sciences in May of 2018, she worked with the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services in various roles, most notably as the dementia services coordinator. In this role, she led a statewide initiative to improve quality of life for individuals living with dementia and their caregivers. As the project director for $2.8M in federal and required matching funds, Bowers executed and monitored sub-awards with community partners, tracked expenditures, completed grant reporting and closeout requirements, handled no cost extension requests and budget reallocations and was responsible for ensuring all deliverables were met. In addition, she was the primary author and developer for a portfolio of grants totaling $2.7M that provided federal funds to DARS and other stakeholders across the commonwealth.
