Who We Are

Doeun Kol, Senior Program Officer

Doeun, known as Duey, joined GMA  as a senior program officer in 2022 following over a decade of cross-sector experience leading and implementing initiatives to expand educational opportunities for lower income students.

Most recently, she worked for more than 15 years with the National Park Service to foster people’s love and stewardship of the outdoors and telling all Americans’ stories. In her most recent role as a Community Planner with the central planning office, Duey advised and co-led the strategic planning process for the NPS commemoration of the 250th anniversary of this country’s independence.

Duey was also actively engaged in the turnaround and transformation of the Lowell Community Charter Public School (LCCPS), where she served as Chair of the Board of Trustees, Chair of the Finance Committee, and member of the Strategic Planning and Development Committee. LCCPS received commendation from the Massachusetts Commissioner of Education and has been recognized as a “profound turnaround” of a failing school within 3 years after nearly being closed for poor academic performance by the State.

Duey is a first generation Cambodian American. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Management and Sociology from Simmons University and a Master’s in Community and Social Psychology from University of Massachusetts Lowell.
