Anita Dowd


Anita Dowd is mom to Emily (20) and Hannah (11).  Both girls have a hearing loss just like their mom.
Emily attended KY School for the Deaf in her early years but transferred to public school because she wanted to enroll in a JROTC program.  She is currently preparing to return to NTID in New York to complete her undergraduate studies.
Hannah is also enrolled in public school and has just recently the band.  Her instrument of choice is clarinet (too much exposure to Sponge Bob!!).
Anita is also the Executive Staff Advisor at the KY Commission on the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (KCDHH) where she performs a lot of advocacy, public relations and outreach work.
