Bush and William J. Clinton. Cowal has also served as U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, minister counselor for public affairs at the U.S. embassy in Mexico, and counselor for political affairs at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations. Other foreign service assignments have taken her from India to Colombia to Israel.

She joined the American Cancer Society recently from Population Services International (PSI). Cowal is a graduate of DePauw University (B.A.) and George Washington University (M.P.A.).
