About Deborah

Deborah Doonan has been involved with education her entire life — literally, as she is the daughter of an educator.

Doonan's life interests have allowed her to pursue different forms of teaching prior to joining Johnson & Wales University. She played sports and then became a coach; she was a student and then became a tutor. Doonan studied accounting and fell in love with the subject — especially taxation — and knew she had found what she was meant to teach at the collegiate level.

After a handful of years in public accounting, Doonan was fortunate to achieve her lifelong dream when she was hired to teach accounting and taxes at JWU.
