Growing up in New York City, Mr. Dowie frequented city pools and noticed that the lifeguards were always incredibly happy and fun-loving. He made it his mission to become a lifeguard and enjoyed the honor that came with saving lives and parents’ gratification. In 1982, Mr. Dowie notably served as a water safety and lifeguard instructor through the American Red Cross at Westchester Community College. From there, he served as a swim instructor of Medley Swim Systems at the University of Arizona from 1982 to 2009, as well as a national infant and preschool instructor at Indiana University from 1984 to 1994. Progressing in his career trajectory, he was a scuba instructor at the University of Miami from 1984 to 2011, a facility sports manager at the University of Michigan in 1990 and 1991 and a lifeguard instructor through Ellis and Associates at York College from 1997 to 2006.

Since 1995, Mr. Dowie has excelled in his post as president of National Aquatics Inc., a swimming lesson and pool maintenance company. From his experiences, he noticed that pool staff was not being trained properly and pool chemistry was often unbalanced, along with many other issues that caused headaches for aquatic teams. In an effort to combat these issues, Mr. Dowie chose to spearhead his company, where he has proudly fixed, manages and rebuilt pools for optimal enjoyment for 25 years. Additionally, he has also served as a program director of Swim America at York College since 2008 and as a certified stroke technician teacher at the University of Florida since 2013. Since 2017, he has been certified as a pool and spa operator in New York City.

Having taught swimming for more than 35 years, Mr. Dowie was the recipient of a special citation honor from the American Red Cross. Dedicated to sports, education and fitness, he maintains affiliation with the American Swimming Coaches Association, American National Red Cross and numerous swimming teams. He was also on the board of Greenburgh in 1981. Looking ahead, Mr. Dowie wants to continue to help others through recreation; one of the ways he plans to do this is to work with cities to better manage their public pools. With his experience in teaching and training, he believes he can help bring the pool experience to greater heights. A certified aquatics facility technician, he hopes to continue to inspire people of all ages to find a love for swimming, as it is the reason for his illustrious career path.
