Meet Your Neighbor: Paula Dowler


Family: I was born in Texas but mainly grew up in Fort Smith. My husband Brad and I met at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, where we lived for eight years. We moved to East End in 2006. We have three boys: Jackson (10), Tucker (9), and Wyatt (4).

Occupation: I am a stay-at-home mom. I have a bachelor’s degree in Nursing and worked in Labor and Delivery before I decided to stay home with my boys.

Volunteer activities: I am the PTO president at East End Intermediate School and I designed the EEE/EEI yearbook for the past three years. I serve as volunteer coordinator for MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), in which I’ve been active for nine years. I’m a member of East Union Missionary Baptist Church, where I help with AWANA and currently teach 3-year-old Sunday School class. This summer I will be a weekly volunteer for “Feed the Need” Restored Community Outreach of East End.

Hobbies: I enjoy watching my boys do their activities, “Pinterest style” crafts,  playing bunco each month, watching HGTV (and planning, but rarely following through, on house projects), and taking trips to visit friends and family.

Three guests at your fantasy dinner: My (late) Grandma Stella, Mary Magdalene, and Amy Poehler.

Last book you read: Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple.

Dream vacation destination: Scotland – I’m fascinated with the history and beauty of Scotland and would like to visit the locations where Braveheart and Outlander were filmed.

Prefer cats or dogs? Cats.

Favorite food or meal: My Grandma Katie’s cornbread dressing, with turkey, mashed potatoes, my Mom’s broccoli rice casserole, and all the other Thanksgiving sides and desserts.

What fun fact would most people be surprised to learn about you? I played on the women’s rugby team at the U of A for a short time. I eventually decided that I did not like being tackled, so I went back to just playing intramurals for my sorority, (ha!). Also, I was the state champion of Texas in BMX when I was a young girl.
