Always the student, Marci Dowdy considers her classroom at Missouri State University to be an admirable open forum. There, she works alongside her counseling students as she engages them with lessons from her career as a professional school counselor.

“I consider myself to be a servant leader to my students,” Marci says. “Rather than just giving advice or telling someone how to do something, I think it’s best to lead by example, and I do my best to show my students how to be involved in their community and their schools.”

Marci leads the way by making positive contributions to her community and profession. For six years, Marci has been a member of the board of directors for Ozarks Counseling Center and has been involved with a variety of professional counseling associations. But her top priority is clear. “Mental, physical and spiritual health, they sort of all work together,” Marci says. “You have to make yourself a priority. That’s something I teach in my classes: Whatever you need to do to take care of yourself, do it, so you have a richer and fuller cup to share with others.”
