About Anita Cowan

Anita is the Veteran Clinic’s executive assistant. She has worked at the University of Missouri for over 20 years, in several areas, including the office of the vice chancellor for student affairs, as well as the dean of the Graduate School.

One of her dreams in life has been to work closely with veterans, as her husband Todd is an Army veteran; therefore, she has a very personal relationship to the work done in the clinic. Anita also is a leader and social coordinator in the local chapter of Team Red, White, and Blue.

She lives in Columbia with Todd, while her two children live nearby. She also has family in the United Kingdom, where she was originally born, with whom she was able to connect with through genealogy research recently. She has an adorable dog named Max and loves watching episodes of reality TV while enjoying a nice glass of wine.
