A native of New York (Long Island), Dowd received her bachelor’s degree and MBA from Virginia Wesleyan University in Virginia Beach.
Dowd had previously worked for a payroll and HR services company in Virginia Beach.
“McKenzie will be a terrific addition to our company and help us continue to grow within K-12 and higher education,” said Danny Rubin, the founder of Rubin. “Training and onboarding new educators is one of the most important tasks we do, and we know McKenzie will be a great fit for that responsibility.”
Rubin Emerge integrates into common learning management systems like Google Classroom, Canvas, Schoology, Moodle, Blackboard, D2L and Sakai. Whenever possible, we provide “single sign-on” access so students can work on Emerge lessons without the need for an additional username or password.
