Dr. Howard’s path to a career in education was encouraged by her father, who worked for the Department of Defense as the director of education for a military installation in New Jersey. In the near future, she is looking forward to publishing a book that she edited that looks at the government, non-profit organizations and health care through the lens of COVID-19.
